Go For Gold-Air Force star Ranran Abdilla was hailed as the Spikers’ Turf Reinforced Conference Most Valuable Player, Sunday evening.

This is Abdilla’s second MVP crown in the country’s first-ever league dedicated to men’s volleyball, winning it back in the 2017 Reinforced Conference after coming back from an ACL tear in his right knee.

The native of Tawi-Tawi led the league in scoring after the elimination round with 203 total points, averaging 18.45 points per outing.
