LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Robert Smith was one of the most exciting guards in Rebel basketball history. He played on the team that went to the Final Four in 1977 and worked as a Rebel broadcaster until he suffered a stroke in 2019. His broadcasting partner, Jon Sandler has put together a GoFundMe page for Smith to help him in his recovery.
UNLV Runnin’ Rebel legend Robert Smith is in desperate need of a power wheelchair to enable his mobility and improve his quality of life. In addition, the family needs a lift to be able to transport the chair. We have secured funding for approximately half the costs but need your help! Please give what you can today. We will post a picture of the chair and lift on Twitter and Facebook as soon as we have raised the money and they have been delivered to the family.
