The Philippine volleyball community is still reeling from the sudden passing of coach Ernesto “Nes” Pamilar. The multi-titled mentor has stamped his mark of excellence in every coaching stop he made. While he could have trained more players, it’s certain that he gave everything to the sport. No wonder everyone he has influenced seem to be in a standstill after this depressing development. But while family, friends, players, and co-leagues mourn about his death, life will go on. Volleyball will go on.
Any games scheduled today?
There are no local games today. But in today’s Japan V.League action, Jaja Santiago and the Ageo Medics will play the Toyota Auto Body Queenseis today at 11 am Philippine time. Likewise, Marck Espejo and the Oita Miyashi Weisse Adler will battle against the Suntory Sunbirds at 2 pm PH time as well. Dindin Santiago-Manabat and the Toray Arrows will face off with the Denso Airybees at 3 pm.

Sad to hear of the passing of coach Nes Pamilar. Loved to tease him and Kit Santos about treating me to merrienda if FEU won UAAP crown. They did with Rachel Anne Dacquis, Wendy Semana etc. Nes was always open about his coaching. He will be missed by the volleyball community.

RIP Coach Nes Pamlar. It was an honor playing against you, with you, being your friend and a fan of your coaching. I will always cherish our quick “mafia” back in the day.
