San Beda official gives Boyet Fernandez high praise: ‘He’s probably second only to Tab Baldwin’

Another NCAA season has ended and once again, Boyet Fernandez was the last one standing.

Even if he had a forgettable stint with the UP Fighting Maroons, Fernandez is invincible in the NCAA. In his four-year stint with San Beda, he has accumulated a 74-12 record, winning four championships along the way.

Outside of the NCAA, he has also been golden. Fernandez won six championships with the NLEX Road Warriors and two with the Cignal HD Hawkeyes.

Having been part of four of Fernandez’s NCAA crowns and two with the D-League, San Beda team manager Jude Roque is still amazed with Fernandez’s golden touch, calling him one of the best in the game today.

“I want to give credit also to Coach Boyet. I think Coach Boyet is one of the most underrated coaches, but in my opinion, he is a top three college coach in the country…” shared Roque after San Beda’s sweep of Lyceum.

“Probably second only to Tab Baldwin.”

Though he does not have to, as game tape is readily available, Fernandez always makes sure to scout all of their opponents. And he does not discriminate, as he puts in the same work as he had with the Lyceum Pirates in the NCAA and the DLSU Green Archers’ Team B squad in the PCCL early this year.

Safe to say, it’s his work ethic that pushed him above Roque’s echelon of coaches.

“t’s really been our defense that’s been winning championships for San Beda. So he’s now a four-time NCAA champion coach, but I don’t think he’s getting enough credit, so ‘yun lang ang gusto ko ma-add sana,” added Roque.

“I think he deserves more credit than he is getting.”

Definitely, Fernandez is the epitome of the line ‘hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard’.
