Rising Stars: Eya Laure and Coach Kung Fu Reyes Lead Team to PVL Semifinals
Eya Laure and deputy coach Emilio “Kung Fu” Reyes of Chery Tiggo have shared a special bond for a long time. They communicate through body language and unspoken understanding. During a recent match against F2 Logistics in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL), Laure looked at Reyes with a hint of surrender when they were trailing 2-1. Despite this, Reyes knew it wasn’t time to give up and he understood Laure’s capabilities. Since Laure’s high school days, Reyes has been calling the shots for her, and their connection has yielded great results for the Crossovers. However, in the UAAP, they never got to taste gold in the women’s division due to strong competitors like National University. Despite this, the unison of former rivals has proven successful for Chery Tiggo as they currently sit at the top of the league with an 8-1 record.
