UAAP Season 75: The Phenom Says, "Hi Tibibord!"

For two years now Kiefer Ravena has been one of my favorite players on my favorite sports team, the ADMU Blue Eagles. That's mostly because on and off the basketball court this young man is a credit to the Ateneo.

I like that Kiefer plays the game with sportsmanship. He doesn't play to harm opposing players (well, other than the times he proves his "Phenom" moniker true and puts the hurt on the competition). He helps fallen opponents to their feet, and even pacifies them to defuse tension when things get too heated.

On his own time, Ravena runs an outreach program, organizes benefit games, and lends his name to admirable projects. What's more, from all indications Kiefer hasn't let his basketball stardom get to his head. He accommodates fans, even obliging those supporting the opposing teams.

Oh, and he obliged me:
