    Scottie Thompson, The Newest Gatorade Brand Ambassador

    A big congratulations to Scottie Thompson as he becomes the newest Gatorade brand ambassador. It's a momentous event in the life of Scottie as he's now part of the number one sports drink brand family that almost every athlete dreams to be a part of.

    The shooting guard from Davao del Sur joins a powerhouse team of Philippine sports icons including Ginebra teammate and veteran LA Tenorio and volleyball superstar Alyssa Valdez.

    “Since the beginning of his pro basketball career, Scottie has shown remarkable skill and exemplified grit and passion,” Pepsico Philippines Marketing Manager for Hydration Irvin Sta. Maria said. “As a global brand that has fueled the world’s best athletes, Gatorade has always been at the forefront of supporting up and coming talents like Scottie who are ready to take their games to the next level.”

    Thompson was the 2014 MVP of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) while playing for the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Altas. In 2015, he helped the Hapee Fresh Fighters win their first ever PBA D-League title. Fresh off that victory, he was drafted fifth overall by Barangay Ginebra where his outstanding performance has earned him praises from PBA fans, pundits and no less than head coach Tim Cone. He is dubbed as one of the league’s best rebounding guards today and his tenacity on court reflects the team’s ‘never say die’ mantra.

    Sta. Maria added, “We’re excited to see Scottie inspire more people, especially aspiring athletes, to always put in the hard work and understand the value of proper hydration in fueling sports greatness.”

    He has really come a long way from being an NCAA standout, and in the process, he has proven that having an unstoppable work ethic can really make a big difference in one's career.

    Continue being a great example to all the young ballers out there, Scottie!
