The PBA has had its share of Fil-Ams from way back like Ricky Brown and Willie Pearson. Andy Seigle... is something else. In 1997, Seigle bested Nic Belasco to become the first Fil-Am to become the first pick overall. Seigle would then lead a title-starved Mobiline Phone Pals to contender status. Also, his battles with Marlou Aquino in the late 90s are the stuff of legends. His entry also instigated the influx of Fil-Ams in the late 90s. At one point, Seigle, Jeffrey Cariaso, and Asi Taulava played for one squad. He was also involved in two high profile trades – one with Purefoods sending Jerry Codinera to Mobiline and one with Ginebra acquiring him alongside Rodney Santos in exchange for Jun Limpot to Purefoods.
