Second, to all Consolacionanons for accepting me as your own, it has been great representing your beautiful town and all I can say is that I gave my all! Glad I was part of bringing your first national title. Third, to all the Coaching staff especially to my mentor, Coach Paul Alelu Flores for the guidance, Players and Utilities for trusting me, the memories we shared was (sic) beyond basketball,” said Alocillo.
