3.2 School Pride: The Basketball Star

Bacon Austria, V AB Interdisciplinary Studies

Here’s a bit of trivia not a lot of people know about Ateneo’s guard-forward: his name isn’t really Bacon. Nor is it his nickname. When he played for his grade school basketball team, he wore his dad’s jersey that said ‘Bacon’ on the front, the name of a town somewhere in the country. The name had been coined by his teammates, and later on spread when those teammates became his classmates as well.

What is he wearing?

Not to be mistaken with that tasty, salty strip of pork we enjoy, this basketball player  shows school spirit with his color motif (it just so happens that blue is his favorite color). Having to train six times a week, Bacon goes for comfort over style with a simple shirt-shorts-sneakers ensemble. He totes around a sizable backpack to fit his necessities for school. In its entirety, this outfit makes him blend in perfectly with the student crowd.

Bacon adds a personalized touch to his look with a black case hanging from his backpack. It contains his own pair of Beats by Dr. Dre, and shows how basketball isn’t the only thing that matters in his life. He also enjoys listening to an eclectic mix of music, ranging from hip-hop (his favorite genre) to sentimental songs. Music also helps him hype up before a big game. This just might be one of his secrets to becoming a better player.

Advice from the BlueBook: Remember where you are and dress for the occasion.
