    Remember Basketball Player JAYVEE GAYOSO? Well his son now has the potential to be the next Phil Younghusband of Philippine Football

    Jarvey Gayoso: The Rising Son

    By Rick Olivares, contributor (philstar.com) | Updated January 10, 2017 - 11:47am

    MANILA, Philippines — Second-generation stars seem to be the norm now as they are finding their place if not having cemented their place in sports.

    You have the Ravenas, Tengs, Alases, to name a very select few. There’s one though – whose name is spoken about as many of his games aren’t televised. And that harkens back to a bygone age when reputations spread by word of mouth.

    “Have you seen Jayvee Gayoso’s son play?” Jayvee Gayoso, who won championships with the Ateneo Blue Eaglets and Blue Eagles, was a key player for the 1990s Ginebra teams – you know, was the first collegiate star to get his own commercial (Milo, if you remember that from the 1980s).

    Oh, the son is playing basketball too?

    Not exactly.

    Jarvey Gayoso, standing six-foot-one and in his second year in college, is continuing to make a name for himself — in football.

    He’s been delivering crazy and pitch perfect passes. He’s been scoring. And well, people have been raving. In fact, several UAAP schools tried to get him to take his talents outside Loyola Heights for college.

    “I was introduced to football in kindergarten” he said. “My mom allowed me to play in a football camp and it went well. It didn’t take much for me to fall in love with the sport.”

    The young Gayoso would also go to his father’s basketball camps, but he was never pressured to follow in his basketball footsteps, although Jay also excelled in football and track and field.

    His father though glows about his son’s potential in basketball. “He’s got the height and the smarts,” glowed the father as he took in last summer’s FilOil basketball tourney. Not to mention the genes.

    It isn’t only the father with any sporting pedigree. Jarvey’s grand father, is none other than the late great Ed Ocampo who aside from starring for Ateneo in the 1950s was also named Mr. Football and Mr. Basketball while also representing the Philippines in the Olympics. His other uncle, is Alvin Ocampo, who starred for La Salle’s football team where he also won championships and also suited up for the national team.

    Jarvey Gayoso: The Alpha and Omega of Ateneo’s Golden Run

    LORENZO DEL CARMEN
    1 DAY AGO

    Late in the first half, Ateneo striker Jarvey Gayoso intercepted a pass from FEU midfielder Paolo Bugas and unleashed a powerful shot against goalkeeper Ray Joyel who in turn saved it.

    Not to be denied, Gayoso rebounded the ball into the net after 38 minutes of action to hand the Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles a 1-0 lead against the Far Eastern University Tamaraws in the UAAP Season 79 Men’s Football Tournament Finals.

    That goal ended up as the only one scored in the match, and summed up Gayoso as the alpha and the omega of the Blue Eagles’ sixth UAAP title, as he had scored Ateneo’s first and last goals of the season.

    “That was a God-given goal for me. We just utilized and we just made the most of what happened. I’m glad that we’re still given the championship,” explained the striker.

    “It’s a beautiful season for Ateneo.”

    Sports runs in Gayoso’s genes.

    The Ateneo standout is the grandson of Olympian Ed Ocampo, son of former Brangay Ginebra cager Jayvee Gayoso, and nephew of La Salle and Azkals player Alvin Ocampo. It has been a long time coming, but the Season 79 MVP and Best Striker finally got the championship that has eluded him since his days as a Blue Eaglet.

    Phenom with Pedigree

    Sporting excellence runs in his blood, but Jarvey Gayoso is ready to carve his own niche as the country’s next homegrown football wizard

    By: Cedelf P. Tupas - Reporter / @cedelfptINQ
    Philippine Daily Inquirer / 12:38 AM May 21, 2017

    It has been a long day at school for Jarvey Gayoso, but he’s not done yet. On this Friday afternoon, fresh from an exam at the Ateneo campus, he takes the LRT from Katipunan in Quezon City to Vito Cruz in Manila for the national Under-22 team’s training at Rizal Memorial Stadium.

    He may be racing against time, but there’s hardly a hint of panic in the young man, much like the calmness he shows when he’s in front of the goal—he found the back of the net 12 times for Ateneo in the men’s football tournament of UAAP Season 79.

    Standing six feet, Gayoso—a third-generation athlete—is nimble and slippery, wiggling out of tight spaces without losing possession. He runs like a gazelle and spots a pass a second ahead of a play.

    “If I had a teammate like Jarvey (up front), I would love to give long balls to him,” says uncle and former national team defender Alvin Ocampo. “When he sees the space, he will run to it and finish off the play.”

    Jarvey has always played at a level beyond his years, but it wasn’t until early this month when he finally lifted the first major trophy of his career— the UAAP men’s football crown. It also capped a sensational season that saw him collect best striker and Most Valuable Player honors.

    “It’s a bit overwhelming because I’ve been trying to give Ateneo a championship for the past five years,” says Jarvey.

    He got plenty of help from teammates and was guided by a brilliant young coach in JP Merida, but there was no denying Jarvey’s prodigious talents in the tournament, where he scored his team’s last three goals en route to the school’s first championship since 2013.

    Sporting excellence runs in Jarvey’s blood. His grandfather, Ed Ocampo, is a former Mr. Football in the 1950s and Mr. Basketball in the 1960s. Jarvey’s father, Jayvee, is a former Ateneo basketball star who became a solid rotation player in the PBA’s most popular team, Ginebra, in the 1990s.

    Jarvey Gayoso

    by Kirby G. Jalandoni • Published 20 August, 2017 at 12:30 AM
    from the April 2017 print issue of "The Guidon"

    IN THE dying moments of added time in the late-April match between Ateneo and the National University (NU) Bulldogs in the University Athletics Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 78, the Blue Eagles found themselves down 2-3 thanks to a 90th minute goal by Bulldog Marvin Viray. With it being the last game of the elimination round, the Katipunan-based squad desperately needed at least a draw to keep their Final Four hopes alive. A loss would have plummeted the Ateneo Men’s Football Team (AMFT) down to fifth in the standings and the late go-ahead goal by the Bulldogs had seemingly sent the team packing.

    Jarvey Gayoso, however, was having none of that. Ateneo’s last ditch efforts resulted to the Bulldogs conceding a free kick a couple of yards beyond the penalty box. The then-rookie, who had scored from a free kick earlier in the game, went up to the spot and powerfully sent the ball to the upper right corner, rocketing past the keeper and into the back of the net. Gayoso’s magnificent stoppage-time goal proved to be the deciding factor in Ateneo’s championship aspirations, and was the defining moment in Season 78 for the freshman striker.

    After the departures of midfield ace Mikko Mabanag and the team’s second leading scorer Mashu Yoshioka, Gayoso was pegged to be the leading man in the youth-filled squad of Season 79. Not much was expected from the squad this year due to the inexperienced and rookie-laden roster, but the team shocked many by finishing the elimination round at the top of the table. The sophomore striker’s inspired play has been a big part of the AMFT’s surprise ascension.

    Gayoso has consistently been the leading the pack in terms of production. His goal-scoring prowess has been evident with eight goals in 10 games, but he has also had a knack for distributing the ball more this season. He has been among the league leaders in assists, proving that he does more than scoring goals.

    “I know that it’s not just scoring that will help my team, but also by being able to help my teammates also get into the scoresheet,” Gayoso explains.

    The system implemented by coach JayPee Merida this season has also played towards the forward’s strengths. The team uses a 3-5-2 shape, a defensive formation that emphasizes the use of the counter attack. This is where Gayoso has been especially been potent this season, as his pace and dribbling down the field has fit this free style of play. The Blue Eagles are most dangerous when the ball is on his feet during the counter; the combination of his vision and scoring ability strikes fear on the opposing defenders.

    Our Youth Football teams have not been at par with the rest of South East Asia for a long time now, it's obvious they need better Coaches, better Training and maybe even better Training Materials or Aids. These might help, though ... https://www.facebook.com/49530982752...2324701493071/
