Mother of Paralyzed Football Player Can Hardly Believe What the Opposing Team Just Did for Her Family in Flood-Ravaged Baton Rouge

The family of Devon Gales continues to express their amazement and gratitude to the University of Georgia and its fan base over their support through the past 11 months.

The outpouring of support from the Georgia community has been overwhelming for the Gales family. This latest example was almost too much.

“They’ve already done so much,” Tish Gales said. “To even think that they would attempt to do more for us, it only warms my heart. There are so many good people within that university — I haven’t met one person yet that made me think twice about being a part of their community or just being in their presence.

“They’re such good people and they genuinely care for Devon. Whatever it is he needs, what can we do — it’s never anything else except ‘What can we do to help?’”
