DLSU Football head coach Hans Smit underwent a successful angioplasty procedure last Monday night at the Asian Hospital after suffering two minor heart attacks.
Sam Smit, daughter of the veteran coach, stated that her father has already been transferred to a regular room following his stay in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) right after the procedure. “He’s feeling a lot better now and [we] just got word from the doctor that he may be discharged soon,” she added.
According Larson Smit, it was only the first time that the football mentor has experienced a heart attack, and worse, it happened twice in a span of two days. Larson also shared that his father was given a recovery timetable of one to two months.
The Indonesia-born citizen, who is now a naturalized Filipino, has led DLSU Football to 13 UAAP championships, with 10 coming from the women’s division and three from the men’s.
With the improvement of the legendary coach’s health, the Smit siblings stated that they would like to personally thank everyone who helped and prayed for their dad and family. “Because of you guys, he is up and about right now and still cursing and just being the same old coach Hans. That’s just how he is. He has your back, and this time you guys had his.”
The family has also put up a Go Get Funding page for those who want to help cover the expenses at https://gogetfunding.com/coach-hans-fund/.
