Rico Golez still remembers old ACL tear when playing ball
The spirit is very willing, but the body sometimes needs to catch up.
Parañaque Vice Mayor Rico Golez is a big baller, and takes every chance he has to play a game in court.
The politiko would often show up in full jersey, complete with his protective gear for his knees and leg.
“When you are over 45 years old… more than 25 years from your ACL injury and surgery… at times playing is all that matters,” Golez said, referring to a torn ligament from way back — a common basketball injury.
Tear or none, he is unstoppable in shooting his shots.
