The Life of Jericho (on Instagram)

November 22, 2016
As the Adamson Soaring Falcons barge into the UAAP Final Four for the first time in five years, let’s take an in-depth look at one of the school’s biggest stars–through his own Instagram captions.

His first post on Instagram 199 weeks ago, a date photo:

#saturdate #DQ #ATC #priceless #love #happiness

His photo on a magazine ad that describes him as the “leading scorer for Adamson Soaring Falcons”:

“Always do whatever it takes to be the best, even if it means defeating your own weaknesses” #ThatsG #regram

A Gatorade infographic after he scored 19 points in a win vs the UP Fighting Maroons:

Thank God for a great win today! 🙏😃 #teamadu #uaap76

Another photo of a Gilas jersey:

It’s not about how bad you want it. It’s about how HARD you’re willing to WORK for it! #realtalk

A photo of his Adamson jersey:

Success begins with dreams, that turn into desires, which become actions that don’t stop until they bring results.

Goodluck to my boys! You got my full support all the way. #TeamADU #uaap77 #SoarForTheWin

Man time flies by so fast! I can’t believe I’m on my 2nd year now, it feels like it was just yesterday. Really blessed to be able to play the sport that I love. Btw, see y’all later at Moa Arena for the PBA opening and our first game of the season against Purefoods. #BayanNgRos #TYL

Black and white photo of himself, stepping on a basketball at center court:

I started playing basketball in Saipan in 5th grade. When I was a lot younger, I was torn between playing basketball and doing MMA. But because of an unfortunate incident, I had to choose between the two. I chose Basketball. #DLillard2 #NeverDoubt

People tell me that I can’t make it here. I used that as my motivation, my inspiration. If they can do it, then I can. I’ll prove them wrong. #NeverDoubt #DLillard2
