Myla Pablo will be coming in with a lot of pressure when she sees action for PetroGazz in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL).
But the hard-hitting spiker from Tarlac is hardly worried.
Pablo said she is embracing pressure as well as the role of being one of the leaders of the PetroGazz squad that infused a lot of talent heading into the PVL bubble season.
“It’s exciting that I will be joined by strong players in PetroGazz. Some of them are already veterans so we will surely learn a lot of things from them,” Pablo said, a day after becoming the latest member of the team.
“I don’t feel any pressure because there are many players on the team I can rely on.”
Pablo is a gem of a recruit.
After powering the National University in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines, she saw action in the Philippine Superliga (PSL) before transferring to Pocari Sweat in the PVL.
There, she blossomed into a superstar, leading the Lady Warriors to three PVL titles.
She last played for Motolite, but was released when it decided to take a leave of absence.
Now that she’s already with the Angels, Pablo is tipped to dominate anew as she will be backed by a rock-solid supporting cast like Ces Molina, Meann Mendez, Ria Meneses, Seth Rodriguez and Kath Arado.
The Angeles will also be bringing in assistant coach Ian Fernandez, who was part of the Petron team that dominated the PSL in the past.
“I’m thankful for the Motolite because we’ve been through a lot in the past, but now, I’m moving forward and looking to a fresh start,” she said.
“My focus is now with PetroGazz and I want to bring a positive outlook to the team.”
