In 2010, the remaining players from the ArenaBall Philippines (ABP) Barracudas decided to continue under a different name — the Rebels.
Starting from only a handful of players, the team grew to a squad of more than 40 players. After the 6th ABP season, with only around 22 players left, the Rebels were offered a chance to merge with another team. They thought that it would be a great opportunity to join a team that also had a lot of talent, thus the Renegades were born (What a train wreck that was!).
After an unsuccessful season, the remaining members of the Rebels decided to explore other opportunities by entertaining an offer from another team to merge. They took a chance and accepted. A few months went by; the management of the team did not fulfill their promises and this forced the players to think of another option. Playing coach and team owner BJ “The Chief” Padua, and around 5 players, decided to revive the Rebels and start anew. Fresh faces, no egos– just positive attitudes and a will to learn the game. From there it took some time, but after 4 years, from 6 players The Rebels are now 45, strong and growing.
Here are your Rebels for this PAFL season:
