Georgia paid to fly out parents of Southern WR Devon Gales

Regardless of your college football affiliation, you have to appreciate a kind gesture from the Georgia Bulldogs program this weekend.

Following a scary spinal injury to Southern wide receier Devon Gales which left him with multiple fractures in his neck, the Georgia athletic department paid to fly Gales’ parents from Louisiana to Georgia so they could be with their son during his recovery.

The report comes from

“Gales’ parents are with him: They were flown in from Louisiana at UGA’s expense on Saturday night, then driven to Athens by Georgia staff, according to Georgia athletics director Greg McGarity,” the report reads.

“There has been an active and concerted effort by Georgia officials, led by head athletic trainer Ron Courson, to coordinate with Southern and help out.”

It’s always important to remember there are things much bigger than football and it is amazing to see Georgia going above and beyond to make sure Gales is being taken care of and that he has his support system with him.

Campus Sports wishes Gales a full and speedy recovery.
