Name

The José Rizal University got its moniker from the abundance of World War II vintage bombs in their campus. The JRU campus, like many others, was turned into a garrison by the Japanese army. This led to many vintage bombs mined beneath the campus, which led to the heavy bombers moniker. The Seniors (collegiate) team adopted the Heavy Bomber, while the Juniors (high school) team adopted the Amazing Light Bombers.
