Coming off a triumphant UAAP season, Green Archer's swingman, JC Macalalag, embodies his best self. And that's precisely why he's featured in the #PARCINQSuperFresh lineup.
An unquestionably born athlete, “Mr. Spin Move” credits consistency and confidence for maintaining top form and delivering peak performances. Even helping his squad extend the game series into an exhilarating finale. “Fresh for me means being your best version of yourself. Not just about the looks but also about personality and mindset as well.”
With an outlook seemingly calibrated for winning the title, he attributes his motivation in the finals to his family and the La Sallian community. “Being able to represent La Salle is one of my greatest achievements so far,” he shares. Now, that adds to his already stunning persona.
But beyond athleticism, what draws you to JC is his dedication to the game. “Winning this championship means a lot to me since it is also my way of giving back to the La Sallian community for their support and trust in the team,” he remarks. When asked about his plans, he simply focuses on gearing up for the next season, fueled by his desire to win consecutive victories with his brothers.
This year has been full of surprises, blessings, and adversities for JC. With the heart of a champion, he's just embracing all the lessons and opportunities to become a better person.
