Did you know that 4-time PBA MVP Don Ramon "El Presidente" Fernandez, owner of the Elegant Shot was once a USC Warrior?

This thread is a tribute to a Great Warrior of the early 70's

for me, he's the best player to ever suit the green and gold jersey in cebu basketball.

For a center, he also leads the PBA n steals and assisst. The most most dominant center of his time inspite of his built.

Fernandez hailed from Maasin. I wonder though why his jersey is not retired just like Julian Macoy's at USC
