Al Panlilio gets major love from Meralco Bolts players
Meralco senior vice president Alfredo S. Panlilio, who is seeking medical treatment in the US, has received an outpouring of support from co-workers and the firm’s basketball players.
Panlilio, Meralco Bolts’ representative to the Philippine Basketball Association’s board, has been away for some time now, getting medical care abroad.
Meralco, which is facing crowd favorite Ginebra in a finals rematch, is raring to win the championship for team governor Panlilio, who is known for his passion for the game of hoops.
” There’s a special reason for us in wanting to win it all this year. At the start of the conference, we got together and talked about winning the tourney for governor Al,” team manager Paolo Trillo told reporters Tuesday.
“He’s very much involved with the team. He may not be in the games, but he’s very much involved in the planning and everything that goes on in the team. That really is extra motivation for us to win the championship,” he added.
