Paul Desiderio embracing role as new UP skipper

Named this season’s team captain of University of the Philippines, Paul Desiderio is taking the challenge head on as he leads the fight for the Maroons.

And with high expectations for UP this UAAP Season 80, Desiderio knows it’s not going to be an easy job.

“It’s tough, but coach Bo (Perasol) entrusted me with this role and as a leader, I have to be a good example for my teammates,” he said.

Perasol expects Desiderio’s leadership to not just manifest off the court but especially on it.

“Everybody knows that Paul is our go-to guy, so he has to anticipate the other team’s defensive schemes on him. But he shouldn’t surrender that mentality because he’ll be our number one option, whether I say it or not. At the same time, for him to be more effective, his teammates should also be efficient. The others should also be able to produce for us if teams double up Paul,” he said.
