Larry Fonacier: PBA's Rookie of the Year Life Testimony

Larry Alexander Nacua Fonacier was born on May 13, 1982 in Quezon City. He shares his testimony during the Anniversary Service of Christ Commission Fellowship where he attended weekly worship service.

He, together with team mates Enrico Villanueva and Wesley Gonzales under coach Joel Banal, steered the Eagles to a Cinderella-run to the title and ended Ateneo’s 14-year title drought in the UAAP in 2002 when they won over the De La Salle University Green Archers with a score of 77-70 during Game 3 of their finals series. He was named co-finals MVP, alongside Wesley Gonzales.

Fonacier won the PBA Rookie of the Year award during the 2005-2006 season, his first year in the PBA with the Red Bull Barako. Nicknamed the "Babyface Assassin", He played 55 games with the Barakos during the 2006-2007 season with 13 starts. During that time, he was named as an All-Star, and played for the North All-Stars team in the 2007 PBA All-Star Weekend. After being traded to the San Miguel Beermen, he was then dealt to the Alaska Aces, with his team mate L.A. Tenorio in exchange for Ken Bono and Mike Cortez. During the 2010 PBA Draft, he was traded by the Aces to the Talk n' Text Tropang Texters,  in exchange for the draft rights of Elmer Espiritu.
