PBA player Troy Rosario graduates from NU
MANILA, Philippines—PBA player Troy Rosario has earned his long-awaited college degree after graduating from National University.
In an Instagram post, Rosario proudly shared a special moment in his life, which is receiving his long overdue bachelor’s degree in Management in NU, where he played in the UAAP.
“Today, as I walk through this journey, I am proud to take a step to receive that goal of a lifetime, which I envisioned eight years ago-earning my diploma,” wrote Rosario, who plays for the Blackwater Bossing.
It was in 2015 when Rosario was called up to play for Gilas Pilipinas in the Southeast Asian Games and the Fiba Asia Championships.
It was also in the same year when he was PBA-bound for TNT, making him more occupied than ever. He missed time from school, which delayed his graduation.
But now, the 31-year-old finally has achieved his own “goal of a lifetime.”
“Back in 2015, I missed two important events in my life due to National Team duties, my Graduation and PBA Draft. I was not able to march and receive my diploma. It has always been a dream of mine.”
“For some, it may sound noob but not for me who had nothing but determination and hope just to finish my studies, it is something far-reaching, a goal of a lifetime.”
He most recently averaged 16.1 points and 6.7 rebounds per game in the PBA On Tour.
