"All privileges accruing to Mr. Amores as a student- athlete have been canceled. Based on the Student Manual of the University, he has been further meted out the penalty of suspension from his classes and has been required to undergo community service.
"The University is furthermore working with its Athletics Office, the coaching staff, and the members of the team to ensure their developmental needs to mitigate and prevent similar incidents from taking place in the future," JRU stated.
John Amores, who stands 6’2”, is an NCAA basketball player who plays the forward position for Jose Rizal University. He recently was hit by an indefinite suspension by both the JRU and the NCAA for attacking players of the opposing team last November 8.
Another collegiate basketball player who went viral recently is Ricci Rivero, Andrea Brillantes’ boyfriend, who was interviewed by Boy Abunda. Boy asked Ricci if he thinks that Andrea is “the one” and the basketball star replied in the affirmative. The athlete also explained why he decided to ask Andrea to become his girlfriend during the halftime of his UAAP basketball game months ago. He made the proposal public so that Andrea would feel special and that she would know how proud he is of being in love with her.
In another report, former UAAP MVP and FEU booter Keith Absalon died after an Improvised Explosive Device or IED detonated near him. The young booter was reportedly out cycling with his uncle and cousin when an explosion, believed by the police as caused by a roadside IED, occurred. According to the Bicol PNP, the roadside bomb might have been planted by the NPA. Tributes for the fallen FEU booter poured in from teammates, fellow booters, and fans after they learned about the tragic incident.
