Video: Father of BC DT leaves hospital after 50-day battle with COVID-19

Dicky Betro hospital

Boston College’s football team’s Twitter account shared a great video on Thursday.

Dicky Betro, the father of defensive tackle Ryan Betro spent 50 days battling COVID-19, according to his son. Betro shared on Twitter that his father overcame pneumonia, kidney failure and fevers.

Check out the cheering and applause the elder Betro received upon being released from the hospital:

Good for him. And that was a much-deserved round of applause.

The virus can be particularly difficult for elderly people and those with preexisting health conditions, such as kidney problems. Let’s hope Betro continues to have good health and that anyone else battling COVID-19 is able to beat it too.

Betro had one tackle in one game last season and redshirted the year for BC.
