Georgia fans gift a new house to Southern defensive back paralyzed against UGA

"I want to thank UGA for everything."

Following a very long recovery after his Sept. 26 injury when the Southern Jaguars faced the Georgia Bulldogs, Devon Gales is finally head back to Louisiana.

Gales has spent the last five months recovering from the spinal injury he suffered during the game. Thursday morning he attended a press conference as he prepared to make the journey back home.

He received some very special news.

You can watch excerpts from the press conference in the video above, which was shot by the Macon Telegraph, but these pictures tell the story pretty well.

Best of luck to Gales and his family.
