Unless you have been living under a giant rock, then you must know Phil Younghusband.  This British-Filipino footballer made his way into our consciousness with his thick and fascinating accent, his disarming million-dollar smile and most importantly, his contribution to the growing success and popularity of the Philippine National Football team more popularly known as the Azkals.  Off the football field, he
has been making entertainment headlines because of his romantic pursuits as well as making the multimedia rounds—magazine covers, television appearances and billboards.  He is the power player and idol of today’s youth—good-looking, athletic, popular and almost still available.

But that’s just icing on top of the cake.  Take away all the media hype and what’s left is a grounded and disciplined 23-year-old young man driven by football, his love for his family and a desire to make a difference through the sport that he loves.  “My life really revolves around football,” he declares.  “Even when I am resting, I am still involved with football.”   When he’s not resting or captivating people with his boyish charms, Phil is most likely on training.  A typical training day for Phil and his teammates involves two hours of workout in the morning and then another two hours in the afternoon.  It is short yet intense and in between, he makes sure to rest and to take in the right kind of food and fluids.  Not surprisingly, Phil is the newest face of VitWater Power or Vitpower – a zero sugar,  low calorie, energy boosting drink—exactly the kind of energy drink that his very physical routine requires—earlier endorsed by another topnotch athlete, no less than Manny Pacquiao.

“We all have the capacity to develop our extreme power, we just need to strive harder everyday, keep ourselves busy and useful to  society,” explains the country’s latest sport idol who shares that his formula for success is simple – spending time with his family and friends, keeping himself physically fit, maintaining a positive disposition, and maintaining a balanced life.

Phil adds that proper hydration is likewise important not just for athletes like him but for individuals who are always on the go.   He encourages people who live an active lifestyle to be wise in their choice of drink.
“Some people are so busy that they forget about the amount of water that their body requires.  Some are not just fond of drinking water but you know, there is always a more fun, healthier way to enjoying water,” Phil asserts, pertaining to Vitwater, which he describes as “excellent tasting” and an “extremely good power booster.”

Most 23-year-olds plan on landing lucrative careers, building their own families or travelling around the world.  For this so-called celebrity athlete, the future is, all about football but it is not just about him and his career.  “It’s important to progress and not be satisfied with what I have now if I want more success for the Philippine team and success for the academy.  I want to sustain the popularity of football for a long, long time in the Philippines and not just for a few months.”   He is only in his early twenties but Phil knows a footballer’s career does not last for long, especially after 30.  That is why he is focusing his energies, not just on playing, but on honing the next generation of Filipino footballers.

Phil Younghusband was not born in the Philippines.  Nor does he look or speak Filipino.  Clearly, though, his heart is in this country and he is ready to take this nation to greater football heights.

If you have been living under a rock and have never heard of the rising football star named Phil Younghusband, then it’s about time you do.  It’s always good to learn from someone as extremely driven as Phil, someone who we can, you know, emulate.

It was June 7 when I attended VitWater's (also called VitPower) media presentation for RFM's new drink which is endorsed by nonetheless Phil Young husband.  We were treated to an hour or two of  power dances, games and more revelations from Phil.   Here are snapshots of my wonderful afternoon at 55 Events Place at Quezon City.
