Coach, Joseph Mascarinas, agrees with what the captain said and shared how they have all been more determined. "I'm not saying that for the past few years we were not. but it's just that this year, we are the host of the UAAP season. Expect that we are more determined and more eager to do our best," he said.

"Cheerleading is more technical...dance is parang the icing on the top," he explains. Aside from the stunts, tosses and pyramids, the Falcons embrace the dance part in it all and offer to give something new.
"We give more heart... not that the other schools don't give heart into their performance or routine, but we put our heart and soul into it," he concludes.
