Louie Ramirez to train with V.League club Oita Miyoshi

Reigning National Collegiate Athletic Association Most Valuable Player, Louie Ramirez, is about to embark on an exciting journey to Japan.

The towering 6-foot-3 opposite spiker from Malimpin, Dasol, Pangasinan, who plays for the Perpetual Altas Spikers, has been invited by the prestigious Oita Miyoshi Weisse Adler in Oita City to undergo an intensive three-week training program.

Accompanied by assistant coach Macky Cariño, Ramirez is set to arrive in Oita City on or before August 16, eager to immerse himself in the Japanese volleyball culture and take his knowledge of the game to new heights.

In a heartwarming gesture, Dr. Atsushi Moyoshi, the team’s owner, expressed his excitement at the prospect of welcoming the talented Filipino athlete.

“We are delighted to have Louie join us for this training opportunity. Our team is eager to establish a new relationship with players of his caliber for future endeavors,” Dr. Moyoshi stated.

Ramirez shared his feelings of joy and pride, saying: “Masaya po ako, kasi madadagdagan yung knowledge ko sa volleyball at nakaka-proud po, kasi maraming malalakas na players dito sa atin sa Pilipinas, bukod po sa akin, pero ako po yung na-invite para mag-training. Sobrang excited din po ako na makakapunta ako ng Japan.”

Indeed, Ramirez’s invitation to train in Japan is a testament to his exceptional skills and dedication to the sport. He expressed his gratitude to the Weisse Adler for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Altas’ head coach, Sammy Acaylar, who gave his full support to Ramirez’s international training, explained the significance of this opportunity for the young athlete and the team.

“I allowed Louie to train abroad para mas lalo siyang gumaling at marami pang matutunan sa larong volleyball na madadala nya dito sa team, sa NCAA, at sa bansa.”

The Tamayo Family, with the gracious support of Chairman Tony Tamayo, President Dr. Anthony Tamayo, and Vice President for Sports Anton Tamayo, played a crucial role in making Ramirez’s journey to Japan possible.
