Who are the players who have won at least one title in every level of basketball here in our country? highschool, college, amateur and professional (Kung applicable isama ang SBP at Passarelle kayo bahala ;D)

I can only think of 5 players so far who have done so.

1. Gerard Francisco
- Won titles in the juniors and seniors with UST in the UAAP (As a Tigercub in 1994 and as a Tiger in 1995 and 1996)
- Won a title with Tanduay in the PBL (I can't exactly remember the specific conference but from my recollection it was back in 1998. When he was with a star-laden Tanduay team coached by Alfrancis Chua).
- He was part of the first ever championship of Sta. Lucia back in the 2001 governor's cup.

2. Enrico Villanueva
- Just like Francisco, he also won titles in the juniors and seniors with Ateneo in the UAAP (As a Blue Eaglet in 1995 & 1997 and as the King Eagle in 2002).
- Won a championship with Ateneo-Pioneer in the PBL (The conference before the start of the 2002 season of the UAAP)
- He was among the leaders of the Red Bull team that won the 2005-2006 PBA fiesta conference.
- Larry Fonacier and Paolo Bugia should be included here with Enrico since they've been teammates practically for most of their basketball careers.

3. Joseph Yeo
- He led Xavier to the title in the Tiong Lian. I can't remember what year.
- won a title with DLSU in 2001
- He was a key member of the first champion team of Harbour along with Tenorio.
- part of the Sta. Lucia team that won the 2007-2008 PBA Philippine Cup.

Anybody else? I'm pretty sure some old players as well have won at every level.

Ikaw naman naalala ko lang. ;D
Yung high school at collegiate days ni Samboy hindi ko na maalala.
Pero yung 1985 Jones Cup stint niya I definitely remember because I have a betamax copy of it. Yung Mama's love he also had Jojo Lastimosa's older brother as a teammate also. And definitely yung 1989 Grand Slam napa nuod ko sa TV.

Venancio "Benjie" Paras was San Beda High School Class of 1986.
He was a rookie in UP when they won the UAAP title.

So Paras never won a title as a Red Cub or I posted the wrong championship year?

I'd like to put down Rommel Adducul on this list but I do not know what his high school accomplishments were.

I know for sure he won several titles in the NCAA, at least one each in the PBL and the MBA, and of course at least two with Barangay Ginebra in the PBA, and at least two international titles, SEABA and SEA Games I think.

It will be tough for the modern-day ballers to win at all levels because we it becomes harder and harder to win the top plum in Asia. Take away the regional level and you'd probably get a handful. But the key is to win in HS. Having said that I think Elmer Reyes is probably the last to win on all levels.

HS: San Beda - NC Juniors Champs
College: San Beda - NC Juniors Champs
Commercial League: Magnolia/Lagerlite (?) PABL champs
ASEAN Level: RP Team - SEA Games champs
Asian Level: RP Team - ABC Champs
World Inter-club level: Northern Consolidated - Jones Cup Champs
Professional League: San Miguel Beer - PBA Champs

Joe, Adducul Led Cagayan to the Cagayan Valley Regional Athletic Association (CAVRAA) crown. I'm not sure how basketball is set up in Cagayan today but I'm sure he would have led St. Paul of Tuguegarao to a crown.

^Naalala ko yung Lagerlite team na yun pero hindi ko maalala si Elmer Reyes.

I have a copy of the 1985 Jones Cup stint (Championship game vs US). I didn't recall seeing Elmer Reyes there too.
Reserve yata doon si Elmer Reyes. Ron Jacobs used only a 8 to 9 man rotation for San Miguel-Philippines. Mostly babad sila Moore, Engelland and Still. Kung may papalit man si Franz para kay Hector, Allan for Samboy, Yturri for Still and Dignadice for Moore.

Hindi nanalo si Benjie when he was with the Red Cubs. Benjie was recruited by Badolato from Grace Christian HS.

Sino si Dumdum pareng bchoter?

Johnny A. led the FEU Baby Tams to the '87 juniors crown, upsetting the Adamson Baby Falcons in the finals. I'm not sure if Vic Pablo was his teammate, but if he was, then there's another player who won at every level.

^ Si Dumdum ng dating Cebu Central Colleges na iba na ang pangalan ngayon. He's about 6'2" na ilalim ang laro. Hindi na tumangkad kaya di na rin masyadong umangat ang laro at pangalan.

He is Michael Dumdum. He was a member of the Cebu Cental College (now University of Cebu) jrs team which defeated the Johnny Abarrientos led FEU Baby Tams in the National Intersecondary Basketball Championship (not the National Open) in 1988.

Joel Banal won championships in three different levels College, Amateur and Professional, both as a player and as a coach. I think we can also throw in an international championship as well, not 100% sure with that though. Also not sure about his high school credentials

bchoter, my old man's things are in the care of my brother. I'll ask him to find it first.

Joel Banal, I think, was part of the 1981 Mapua NCAA Champion team together with Leo Isaac.
Joel Banal won PBA Championships with Great Taste Coffee in the mid-1980s with Coach Baby Dalupan.

As a coach, he led Mapua to the 1991 NCAA Championships and Ateneo to the 2002 UAAP Championships.
He also won a PBA Championship as a coach for Talk N' Text in 2003. That was the time yung may Oakwood mutiny.
