Legendary college football coach Howard Schnellenberger is recovering after a scary fall in early August. On August 10, reports surfaced that Schnellenberger, 86, had suffered a fall in his home in Boynton Beach, Florida, and was placed in a South Florida rehabilitation center.
According to ESPN’s story of the incident, Schnellenberger was suffering from a collection of blood outside the brain, identified as a subdural hematoma. But while the fall was no doubt serious, it appears he’s moving towards being 100 percent again.
In a statement posted on a joint Facebook account between Schnellenberger and his wife Beverlee, Schnellenberger was described as being, “in the first quarter,” of his recovery. However, the update appeared to be overall a positive one.
“Spoke to Beverlee and she says Coach continues to work to get better,” the joint account posted. “She says it will be a slow process, that they are in the First Quarter, and that Coach is going to keep working and intends to win in the Fourth Quarter like always!”
Many are interested in the update of Schnellenberger’s health because of his resume and his place in the history of college football. When listing some of the memorable coaches in the history of the game, Schnellenberger always cracks the list.
My Note: Look at how many fine (older) Football Coaches have passed away recently after serious falls (or OTHER accidents): LaVell Edwards, Lindy Infante, John McGregor, Howard Mudd, etc. Let's pray that Coach Schnellenberger makes it!
