COBY Santos made an impact throughout the 2018 Francisco M. Diaz Memorial Youth Basketball League U18 Division as one of Ol’ Aces’ main offensive players who carried the team to a perfect record leading to the championship.

Santos could do it all, scored from behind the three-point line, finishing strong inside, and produce second chance buckets aiding in the Ol’ Aces dominance of the games.
