Since fan ka rin lang naman ni "Flint", sino pa kaya sa atin ang makaka recall na si Fernado "Jojo" de Guzman ay:
1. Nag usual no. 15 na uniform number ng mid season addition sa Tefilin nuong 1st year nila sa PBA nuong 1980 at nag no. 20 the following year.
2. Member ng 1974 Asian Youth Champion RP Youth team coached by Nilo Verona. One thing notable about that team is that yung mga bankuan na MICAA players ay mga magagaling pala pag sila-silang mga bata ang magkakasama. Jojo and Romy Cabading of Manilabank. Ely Capacio and Greg Gozum of YCO, Freddie Hubalde, Bernie Fabiosa, and Jesus Sta. Maria of Crispa, Florendo Ritualo, Sr. and Danny Pribhdas of CFC. Chingching Marcelino of Adamson was captain ball of the team and other members included Boy Mora of San Sebastian College and Giovanni Arceo of UST.
Tembong Melencio played for Concepcion Industries Incorporated (or CII as sewn at the back of their shoerts). Kasabay ng pagdisband ng Yutivo Opels ang Meralco kaya kakampi ni Tembong bigla si Jimmy Mariano at Boy Marquez at ang resident superstatr ng CII na si Jet Dungo. It was while in Concepcion, he represented the Philippines in the 1972 Olympics and the 1973 ABC where we ended up as champions. Nagsuntukan din sila ni Johnny Revilla habang nasa CII si Tembong.
Tell you about Crispa's depth in those days. Freddie Hubalde was part of the original Crispa line up that went winless before the PBA debuts of Atoy, Philip and Bogs near the end of the first round of the 1975 first conference. They even wore Crispa Style 400s T-shirsts in one of those games before Atoy and company's arrival. I was not happy then because Atoy and company's first game was against Tanduay. Tanduay was an also-ran at that time and it was quite unfortunate that the rare time that they had a good chance to win, they ended up as Atoy and company's first victims. The score 122 to 100 if my memoruy is right.
Freddie got the opportunity to show his developments as a player when Bogs Adornado got injured in the 1976 2nd conference after coming off an MVP stint in the All Filipino 1st conference. This was where Freddie was on a roll. Becoming the MVP in 1977 and a PBA Mythical first five in 1978.
