Devon Gales is returning to Athens.

The former Southern player famously made the trip to Athens with his team back in 2015 and was tragically paralyzed in the matchup against the Bulldogs.

Instead of that being the end of the story, Gales has fought hard to push forward in his recovery, and thanks to support and donations from Dawg Nation and the help of non-profit organization “Sunshine on a Ranney Day,” the former Southern player now has a beautiful new home designed specifically for him that is close to his rehab facility.

As Gales continued his progress, he managed to stay connected to the game as he landed an assistant coaching job at Jefferson High School in Georgia.

Now the latest news on the former Southern player comes from Jefferson’s head coach, Gene Cathcart, as Gales has been accepted as a student at Georgia and will soon start classes in Athens.
