Sierra Vista Coach Sergio Villasenor to Have Heart Surgery

(Baldwin Park) – Sierra Vista co head coach Sergio Villasenor has been hospitalized after suffering a fall at his home last Thursday which was the result of a heart attack.

Villasenor, along with his son Matt Villasenor, led the Dons to an 11-2 record on the field last year and into the CIF semi finals in their first year at Sierra Vista.

Sergio Villasenor vows that he will be back on the sidelines this season. Here is a message that he sent to his team Saturday night:

Gentlemen, good evening,

Didn’t want you to hear this from someone else.

On Thursday I was on a ladder doing some trimming. I had a heart related blackout and next thing I realized I was in an ambulance on the way to the Hospital.

I received 3 staples on a head wound, and had some bleeding in the brain/head area and also found out it was a mild heart attack. Since then having several tests done, I will be needing bypass heart surgery,

You will not get rid of me that easy. I will recover and be back to coaching soon, (4-6 weeks). I promised you and the community a few state Championships.

We have a great staff and I have complete confidence in them. If you have any questions you can contact them. I expect you all to be getting your work done.

We are DONS and we never FLINCH

    That’s the kind of tough talk I like to hear. Seems we only see this kind of rugged determination in the movies, but here it is in real life, in our own backyard. I’d offer my best wishes, but this is the kind of guy who’s not into wishing for anything….he goes and gets it.

    Best of luck and prayers to him for a quick recovery and getting back to being a leader of young men.
    I played against him many moons ago when he was at Wilson(Ron Cuccia-era) and I was at Marshall. We didn’t do so well.
