ATHLETE'S CORNER: New goal in sight for Jarvey Gayoso

MANILA, Philippines – Homegrown football star Jarvey Gayoso is out to help the country earn a breakthrough run in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. 

Even with a basketball pedigree – his grandfather is three-time Olympian Ed Ocampo and his dad is former PBA stalwart Jayvee Gayoso – the family's youngest star athlete chose his path in a sport that is struggling to make a mark in the country. 

Jarvey, though, has proven himself early in local football – winning two UAAP championships and two UAAP MVP awards and debuting with the Philippine Azkals last year. 

But there's stil no stopping Jarvey as he now sets his sights on a historic podium finish for the Philippines in the regional biennial meet. –
