Jackie Forster took to Instagram to express her pride and joy after her son Kobe Paras got admitted to the University of the Philippines’ basketball team, the Fighting Maroons.
“When you’re happy, mama’s happy! Stay blessed my love. Thank you for the warm welcome #FightingMaroons I can’t wait to watch!” she wrote.
After finishing high school at La Salle Greenhills, Kobe went to the United States to continue his education. He was initially planning to enter University of California, Los Angeles but then went to Creighton University instead. He also transferred to California State University before deciding to go back home and eventually became a Gilas cadet.
