This was one of my first shots of Gabe Norwood when he was first recruited by the Philippine National Basketball Team in 2007 (I was also just starting out as a Sports Photographer that time). The team participated in the 4-Nation Manila Invitational Basketball Tournament in San Juan Arena which includes teams from China, Syria and Lebanon.

Gabe Norwood has come a long way since 2007, first is the recent PBA Governors Cup where Rain or Shine won their 1st PBA title and also first Championship of Norwood in the PBA. Now, he is leading Smart Gilas 2 in the Jones Cup with a 5-1 record after beating Iran. Norwood has been known for his all-around skills in offense and defense, and now Norwood has become a clutch player for the Philippine Team.

Good Luck Smart Gilas 2!
