Former De La Salle University volleyball players players Cha Cruz-Behag and Mika Reyes talked about their relationship with the legendary coach, Ramil de Jesus, on "The Score."

With De Jesus as La Salle coach, the Lady Spikers enjoyed a "dynastic" rule in the league during the 2010s.

Cruz vouched that De Jesus took care of his players even outside the playing court.

"Ang relationship namin with coach, aside from the coach sa loob ng court, sa labas you'll really feel him as a father na pagsasabihan ka not about volleyball but also about life," Cruz said in an interview on "The Score."

Although De Jesus rarely shows his emotions on court, especially during their brutal training, Reyes said he can also be very emotional.

"Sa start, hindi mo siya makikitang nagpapakita ng care sa 'yo, bubugbugin ka talaga. Pero pag na-reach n'yo na ang goal n'yo, doon siya lumalambot," said Reyes. -- The Score, ABS-CBN Sports+Action, Jan. 20, 2020
