ATHLETE’S CORNER: Marck Espejo’s legacy
Never did the country's top male volleyball player imagine that he would make a big difference in local sports


MANILA, Philippines – He was just a ball boy back in high school.

Rappler sits down with Espejo – who also powered the Blue Eagles to 5 UAAP finals appearances that netted 3 championshps – as he recounts key moments in his career that turned him into one of the country’s top athletes.  –
