UAAP Season 80 Preview: NU Bulldogs ready to pull off surprises

first_imgView comments “J-Jay Alejandro and Matt Salem will be carrying the load for this season. With Issa Gaye joining us, that will be a good help also. And the bench will play a big, major role in our quest this season,” he said.But more than the manpower, what makes Jarin successful is his tried-and-tested system, something which he is hoping the Bulldogs have already bought into.“It takes a lot of time to really adapt to what you really want. But then, the only thing is I’m very fortunate personally because I inherited a group that has this good attitude — that has winning attitude, great culture. So you have to give credit to coach Eric Altamirano and his coaching staff for doing a great job,” he said.With that said, Jarin expects nothing less from this NU crew to bring in the energy for the full 40 minutes.“We’re gonna come in with a lot of energy. We’re gonna come in very competitive. We’re gonna come in all-out, and ready to surprise everybody.”ADVERTISEMENT For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.
