PIBNA 2011


"Our championship victories can be attributed to our hard work, teamwork, and talent," said Blancas. "We practice throughout the year. In our 7 Open Title championships, we won that title three years in a row from 2005 to 2007."

It certainly helps that Blanca's sharp eye for talent allowed him to recruit top caliber players in the FSA sports program. "We have former PBA / PBL players participate in our program," said Blancas. "A lot of our players were also top picks and draftees in Philippine professional basketball."

"Among the talent who played for FSA Jax Mens Open team were: John Arigo (Alaska), Francis Rauschmayer (Montana Pawnshop), Mike Holper (Ginebra), Kim Valenzuela (Ginebra), Robbie Reyes (Talk N' Text), Nick Stephens (PBL MVP), Julius Cumlat (Harbour Centre), Joe Devance (PBA No. 1 pick -- Rain or Shine), Solomon Mercado (Rain or Shine).

In the near future, Blancas would like to see more youths to take basketball as a sport. In Florida, Tampa is the other PIBNA member, Orlando and Miami being guest members and participants in previous PIBNA conferences.

"FSA Jax, playing on its home turf is a heavy favorite in the Open Division," said Blancas in an interview with Basta Pinoy News. "I'm not being biased, but since we joined in 1997, our record speaks for itself."

Indeed, the man is not firing blanks. To buttress his prediction, Blancas cited the stellar record of his team since 1997. It has racked up 9 Division tiles, 7 of these in the premiere division -- the Mens Open, the others in the Womens and 5'10 and under.
