Andres Rafael Aldeguer takes home Rookie of the Year gong in UAAP Season 82 Juniors Football

Another Aldeguer has made waves representing the Green and White in the UAAP.

Just like Dino, his dad, and Boris, his uncle, Andres Rafael is living up to his family’s tradition of being varsity athletes for La Salle.

However, unlike the former duo who have made their names on the basketball court, he has opted to strive for glory on the football pitch.

In the recently concluded UAAP Season 82 Juniors Football Tournament, Andres Rafael contributed five goals to help the De La Salle Zobel Junior Archers finish at 3rd place this year and his performances earned him the Rookie of the Year award.

As a second year student in De La Salle Zobel, Andres Rafael has two more years to play in the Juniors Division. He stands at 6’1 and plays as a striker for the Junior Archers.

Only time will tell but the day may come when Andres Rafael leads La Salle to a UAAP title just like how his father Dino did back in 1999 courtesy of his Hail Mary three with only five seconds on the clock left against UST.
