Maglinas, a 19-year-old midfielder for the UP men’s Football team, was suffering from cancer of the skeletal system; he was diagnosed last year at stage two.

According to reports, Maglinas passed away while confined at the Intensive Care Unit of the Philippine General Hospital.

Maglinas was entering his third season with the UP booters when he was diagnosed in October with a rare skeletal muscle cancer known as Rhabdomyosarcoma, ending his collegiate career in football.

Maglinas was a Sports Science major and UP MFT’s right winger. The UP MFT will face the FEU Tamaraws on Sunday, February 7 and have dedicated the game to their fallen teammate.
