After nearly giving up on basketball, Herndon is ready to chase his dream

In just a span of two years, Robbie Herndon went from dousing flames as an aspiring fireman in San Francisco to torching hoops here in the Philippines.

And as the Fil-Am swingman embarks on this new chapter of his life as he enters the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft, he hopes to get the chance to showcase his deadly game in the pros.

“I’ve been waiting for two years for this moment. I’m just glad that I’m eligible because I’ve put a lot of hard work into this. I’m ready to get it going,” said the 24-year-old.

Herndon had shelved his hoop dreams to focus on his education at San Francisco State and almost gave up on basketball a few years back.

“I played two years there and then, I wanted to just focus on my studies,” he said. “That was humbling for me because basketball was the only thing I wanted to do my whole life. In college, I went through a phase when it was hard juggling school and sports. I wanted to get my degree so losing my passion for basketball, I stopped playing after my second year.”
