PBA mourns untimely passing of former player Bryan Gahol




MANILA, Philippines—The PBA mourned the sudden passing of former player Bryan Gahol Tuesday.

Gahol died late Monday in a road mishap along the northbound lane of South Luzon Expressway (SLEx). He was 36.

“Prayers go out to Bryan Gahol and his family… #RIP,” Talk ‘N Text guard Jimmy Alapag wrote on his Twitter account Tuesday morning.

“RIP Bryan Gahol! My thoughts [and] prayer is with [your] family,” Air21 center Asi Taulava posted on Twitter.

The six-foot-five center Gahol was a star back in college for the University of the Philippines in the UAAP during the late 1990s before turning pro in 1999.

He began his PBA career with Mobiline and also suited up for Alaska, San Miguel Beer and Red Bull.

“RIP Bryan Gahol. Was part of our Alaska family in the early 2000′s,” said Alaska head coach Luigi Trillo.

    Tangnang driver na ang may dahilan. Ang dahilan na naman daw eh nawalan ng preno. Kung nawalan ng preno kapag mabagal ang takbo eh ganyan ba ang aksidente?

    Kawawa naman si Gahol magaling na player nung nasa youth at amateur daig pa nya si Ildefonso at ibang sikat na PBA players. Tanda ko pa yung ginawa nya laban sa China di matapalan ng mga intsik ang drive at dunks nya at lahat ng mga tao ang sinisigaw ay “Gahol”. No match din sa kanya sina Menk at Telan ng Tanduay sa PBL at nagchampion pa sila.
    Kaso nabali ang tuhod nya nung naglalaro pa sya sa UP kaya bumagal at bumaba na talon nya bago pa sya pumunta sa PBA. Nasira basketball career nya dahil sa ACL at iba pa na injuries.
    Natalo pa sya sa re-election last year sa dikitang laban sa LB.
    Ngayon naman pupunta lang ng patay na-aksidente pa. Di ako makapaniwala sa kamalasan ng isang mabuting tao na kagaya ni Bryan.
    RIP and condolence from UPLB.

      I always thought Gahol was the best among the other big men of that 1995 RP Youth team, and that included Rommel Adducul and Danny Ildefonso. Had Gahol been 100% healthy throughout his career he might’ve been the best of the lot of them.

    Rest in peace, Brian. Sincerest condolence to the family.
