John Amores explains why he lost temper in NCAA game: “dala ng problema ko”

John Amores of Jose Rizal University had an honest interview with Dyan Castillejo and Quinito Henson on PlayitRightTV.

The athlete explained during the interview why he lost his temper and attacked several players of the College of St. Benilde during an NCAA basketball game last November 8.

According to Amores, he was dealing with personal problems at home around the time the scuffle happened.

One of those issues is being away from his 1-year-old daughter, who he was missing very much. Amores explained that he is not used to being apart from his baby since he was a hands-on father when she was born.

"Siguro po dala lang din ng problema ko the past few days, may dinadala rin pong problema at napepressure din po. Halo halo din po, emotional. Hanggang sa hindi ko na rin po inaasahan po e, bigla na lang din nangyari…

"'Yung baby ko nga po, hindi ko nakakasama. Kasi nung isinilang po siya ako lagi ang nakakasama, ako din ang nag-alaga. Hindi ako nasanay na 'di ko kasama, sobrang laki ng problema na biglang naghalo halo... Nakikita ko lang sa video call lang po," Amores explained.

John Amores, who stands 6’2”, is an NCAA basketball player who plays the forward position for Jose Rizal University. He recently was hit by an indefinite suspension by both the JRU and the NCAA for attacking players of the opposing team last November 8.
