Bolick’s heartfelt thank you to mom will make you cry: She bought me shoes, milk even if we couldnt afford it


Everybody knows volleyball standout Aby Marano unleashed the “beast mode” in San Beda talisman Robert Bolick but it was his mom, Zeny, who made him such a babe.

In a post-match interview after leading the San Bed Red Lions to a sweep of the NCAA 93 Finals against the Lyceum Pirates, Bolick gave an impromptu, heartfelt message to her mom which would surely tug at your emotions.

Bolick, who hails from Ormoc City, credits her mom for supporting his passion.

“When my mom is watching, never akong natalo. Since the start, from bench player, wala akong narating as basketball player (kung hindi sa kanya),” said Bolick.

“She brought me shoes kahit wala kaming pera . Binigyan niya ako gatas kahit di namin ma-afford. When you play in front of your mom, you have to give it your best. I love her to death. I wlll fight for her, I love my mom,” said a teary-eyed Bolick.
