Now attending Vermont academy, located in Saxtons River, Vermont, Christian David began to capture headlines during his tenure in Canada while attending Bishop Reding Catholic as a sophmore.
David is a 6’5 guard who is yet another budding star with a unique story. After ending the 2015-16 season with a better than double-double average in points and assists, David proved to be a more than average team player. Coaches from the B1G Ten and ACC conferences have concluded that David will be more valuable as a combo guard because of his ability to score, rebound, and handle the ball. While Canada is not the hotbed for basketball talent, David’s Canadian as well as Filipino roots has caused a certain hoopla in both respective locations.
There are few to none Filipino basketball stars that are currently holding a meaningful place in the game. Christian David possesses high caliber skill, but also walks around Canada knowing that thousands of Canadians as well as extended family in Philippines are holding him to high standards. As David gains fanfare for his sharp shooting ability and higher than normal court IQ, the heroic buzz from two national locations has become a constant in his ear. The fun part about being a sort of national hero is knowing that you have the opportunity to capture the approval of the masses with your skill. The hard part about being a national hero is knowing that failure is not an option. While all this is a small pocket of game fuel for the young prospect, playing as a young dual national hero may indeed be the role Christian David has taken on. Stay tuned.
