    ‘I love this game!’: Mario Emmanuel Bonleon

    By Marianne L. Saberon-Abalayan

    GROWING up with his dad who was a former Philippine Basketball League (PBL) player, with uncles and cousins who are also into the sport, made it easier for Mario Emmanuel Tupaz Bonleon to also embrace basketball.

    But the catch? He stands six-foot-two and he's just 15. Where else would he get the genes but from tall parents Mario Emmanuel, now a basketball trainer and coach, and Gerlie, a casino host at Pagcor.

    For updates from around the country, follow Sun.Star on Twitter

    "Basketball is our family's No. 1 sport. It is my passion. I love this game!" Embons, as he is fondly called by his loved-ones, said.

    He learned the ropes of the sport at two years old with his dad as his coach.

    Barely 10 years old, he formed part of the team that won the Davao City championship of the Milo Best League 2004 Small Basketeers Division.

    This same team topped the regionals but only settled for the runner-up honors in the national finals. All these in his first year of playing competitively.

    He first experienced winning a national championship in the Milo Best League 2006 Small Basketeers Division.

    He shared, "It felt great winning in a national tournament."

    The Holy Child School of Davao (HCSD) junior also had a stint in the Batang PBA 2006 event in Manila where his team finished runner-up and he was given the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award.

    In 2007, Embons again powered his squad to sweep the provincial, regionl and national titles of the Milo Passerrelle.

    He won back-to-back MVP titles in the Gaisano South (GS) Cup cadet division in 2007and 2008.

    Just this year, Embons was instrumental in Davao's title victory in the Nokia NBTC regional finals held in Cagayan de Oro City and Rexona SBP 33 National Finals. He was also a member of the Davao Regional Athletic Association (Davraa) secondary boys team that captured the silver medal in the Palarong Pambansa held in Tacloban City. He got another silver in the Nokia NBTC National Finals in Manila.

    But his greatest achievement so far was representing the Team Philippines to the Fiba 33 of the Asian Youth Games in Singapore just recently. No less than former PBA coach Eric Altamirano coached the team.

    "I'm so proud to have played for the country and I look forward to competing in Vietnam for the Asian Indoor Games in October," he added.

    He who considers Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and his Dad as greatest basketball players, however, had to go through the rigors of discipline.

    He said. "I wake up early during school days and I have to to complete 60 set of pushups and 150 times sit-ups. In the evenings, I do some dribbling and more pushups and sit-ups before sleeping."

    He continued that he endures his daily routine with supportive parents, saying: "I am what I am now because of the inspiration I get from my Mom and Dad."

    He whiles away time by playing computer, texting and of course, sleeping.

    His greatest dream is to become an NBA player.

    "That's every basketball player's dream. Who knows, it's just a dream," he ended.

    Well, we can never know. But Embons might just be the first Dabawenyo to ever invade the NBA. Call that a vision, a dream?
