Marck Jesus Espejo was born in Manila on March 1, 1997, to parents Joseph and Maria. He also has a younger sister, named Angel. The Espejo family resides in Marikina, where the young prodigy was first introduced to the sport by his cousin, Kenneth.

“I fell in love with volleyball because of my Grade 4 cousin, playing. I’m 6 and 5’6 “tall. I kept going because I thought, because of volleyball, I might go to a good school, ” recalled Espejo, who was only 11 years old when he made his first varsity team at Concepcion Elementary school in Marikina.

Who is Marck Espejo?

Marck Jesus Espejo was born in Manila on March 1, 1997, to parents Joseph and Maria. He also has a younger sister, named Angel. The Espejo family resides in Marikina, where the young prodigy was first introduced to the sport by his cousin, Kenneth. Almadro’s eye for talent did not fail him as Espejo soon developed into a fine player at Sta.

One of Espejo’s best achievements as a player was winning a championship and being hailed as the Best Attacker in the 2012 Palarong Pambansa held in Pangasinan. Because of these accolades, several college coaches began recruiting him, including Sammy Acaylar, who was then the head coach of La Salle.

Ultimately, Espejo followed Almadro, the first coach who took notice of him, to the Blue Eagles’ nest in Katipunan Avenue. He also saw Almadro’s return to Ateneo after coaching in NU for two UAAP seasons as a very timely blessing.

“Ever since, my dream school was really Ateneo, but there was no bridge or help to get me through,” said Espejo, who is now taking up Interdisciplinary Studies.

With Espejo in the mix, Ateneo suddenly emerged as a force to reckon with the UAAP Season 76 Men’s Volleyball tournament.

Blue Spikers won five in a row for a 7-3 record and are tied for second place in the team standings with perennial title contender FEU. Ateneo successfully defeated NU (9-1 record, 1st), and they did it in straight sets back in January 18.

Best Scorer

In ten matches, Espejo, who has grown to 6 foot 2, is averaging 21.1 points per match and is ranked No. 2 (211 points) behind UST’s Mark Alfafara (236 points) in the list of the league’s Best Scorers. He ranked in the Top 10 in spiking (4th), blocking (9th), serving (2nd), dgging (9th) and receiving (6th).

Although he may be in the running for several individual awards, Espejo chooses not to get caught up with the hype.

“For me, it’s a bonus maybe because I didn’t expect this to happen to us. So, we don’t understand that. Just a game. ”

At the tender age of 16, it’s awesome to see the things he can do on the court – Soaring through the air like Superboy, reaching for the sky with the left hand before directing the path of ball with his right. The way he varies his attacks speaks volumes of the kid’s intelligence. And, his calm demeanor on the court shows that he is mature beyond his years.

His teammate, Ricci Gonzales, described him best: “Espejo is supreme.”

And, together, Espejo and the Ateneo Blue Spikers are on the way for volleyball supremacy.
