For most of us, we find motivation from the people we dearly love. For Vaughn, it comes from his dream to be a PBA player one day while running his own business. This 6’3 guard admires Joe Devance because of always playing in style, and Lebron James for his strength and exemplary commitment to the sport. The former Tiger Cubs team captain is on his last playing year in the next season of UAAP and expect to bring out the best in him under the coaching leadership of Aldin Ayo.
