UAAP goalscoring champ Mamon hopes to remain in FEU

Selwyn Nickos Mamon was the undisputed goalscoring king of the UAAP Season 85 High School Boys’ Football Championship.

The 18-year-old forward from Far Eastern University-Diliman scored 10 goals in just seven games this season, five of which came against Ateneo de Manila University in the second round of the eliminations.

“First UAAP ko din and then sobrang maraming first time para sa akin. Mga goals ko puro team effort and then lahat effort talaga ng team,” said Mamon.

“Sobrang saya kasi parang na-fulfill mo yung rason kung bakit ka kinuha ng school para maglaro.”

With his goalscoring record this season, Mamon was expected to be the one who will score the goals for the Baby Tamaraws in the final against De La Salle Zobel. However, it just was not meant to be.

The former Iloilo FA standout was a marked man throughout the contest. His teammate Ronmer Paciente eventually came up with the goals but the important thing for him was that the Baby Tamaraws were able to extend their championship streak to 11 seasons.

“Di kami nag-give up hanggang sa huli. Ginawa namin yung best namin na hindi kami sumuko sa game nung na-skoran kami nung una and then yun, tuloy-tuloy po. Nagka score kami and then nanalo kami sa game,” said Mamon.

“Sobrang saya and then kasi parang tradition na din sa FEU juniors na ituloy-tuloy yung championship.”

Whatever happens in the future, Mamon will always be remembered as one of the key players in Baby Tamaraws’ dominance of the high school division.

When asked about where he plans to take his talents now that his high school career is officially over, the Iloilo native expressed his desire to stay in the institution that gave him his big break in the UAAP.

“Kung kukunin pa ako ng FEU, mag-ste-stay ako sa FEU.”
