It’s another historic feat for the Ateneo Blue Eagles as they secured a three-peat victory in this year's UAAP Men’s Basketball finals, beating the UST Growling Tigers, 86-79, and keeping a clean sheet throughout the season with 16 wins and zero losses. One of their notable players, Finals MVP (and our September #EyeCandy!) Thirdy Ravena, has been one to watch for since the season started for his impressive play, but that’s not the only thing sports fans admire him for.

After the final game at the SM Mall of Asia Arena and in the midst of eager fans celebrating the Blue Eagles’ win, Thirdy went up to the lower box section where his friend Andy was and handed over his UAAP gold medal. According to Thirdy in an interview with the Tiebreaker Times, he promised Andy, a long-time friend with Down syndrome, a UAAP gold medal prior to the start of the season. The three-time Finals MVP shares, “I kept my promise kasi sinabi ko sa kanya ‘yun even before the season started. I’m just really happy na nagawa namin ‘yun at nabigay ko ‘yung medal na pinromise ko sa kanya.”
