Danny O’Fallon, the Los Angeles Roybal basketball coach who guided his team to a City Section Division III championship last season, then collapsed to the court in joy while battling stage 4 colon cancer, is back coaching his team this season.
As usual, he seems more concerned about his players than himself. He said a 1-2 start might be because of a championship hangover, but he has confidence in his team.
O’Fallon is facing many challenges. He’s undergoing aggressive chemotherapy treatment that has left him hoarse and without hair.
