MANILA - NU Bulldogs' Captain Dave Yu ended his UAAP career last Sunday with a win against the UE Red Warriors.
"Final game for me, malungkot pero I'm happy kasi madami akong natutunan sa UAAP and sa NU community. I would like to thank UAAP for the opportunity to play in this prestigious league." said Yu last Sunday after their last game at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Yu shared since he came from the batch from NU's championship last UAAP S77 that, "Naisip nga namin na, paano kaya if nag-graduate din kami ng champion din pero sayang lang but wala na tayong magagawa doon nangyari na."
Yu further mentioned, "For sure yung group na magsstay pa don, massurprise kayo lalo na kasi sobra kaming nasaktan, next season babawi yon para sa amin."
Yu's priority as of now after his UAAP career is the civil engineering board exam, aiming to take the boards on May.
Yu added, "I'll think about if I'll still play but nandoon pa rin yung fire but first goal ko muna is pass the board exam."
Yu ended with, "Para sa akin, pinapakita ko sa inyong lahat na yung NU, 'di lang siya sa sports, pati sa education. Ako yata yung first na nag graduate na Civil Engineering, pinapakita ko sa mga kasama ko na kaya din nila gawin yon kasi right now, kahit mga athletes ngayon madami ng Engineering students, so binigyan ko sila ng path."
