Devon Gales, who was paralyzed against UGA, shares video of him walking

Good news to report regarding former Southern receiver Devon Gales, as the young man is up and walking with the assistant of therapy specialists less than two years after his spinal injury suffered in Sanford Stadium. Gales broke his sixth cervical vertebra after colliding with Bulldogs kicker Marshall Morgan on Sept. 26, 2015.

Following the devastating injury, Gales has refused to give in and has shown steady progress in his efforts to regain his ability to walk. Since the accident, Gales and his family have developed a tight bond with the University of Georgia following several acts of generosity and fundraising on Gales’ behalf led by the school.

In March, Gales even attended Morgan’s wedding, posting pictures from the event online.

Now comes this video Thursday, posted by Gales showing off his latest sign of progress.

Iowa tight end threatened with gun in hometown of Omaha

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Police say a 23-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of pulling a gun on Iowa tight end Noah Fant.

Fant, a graduate of Omaha South High School, told police he was threatened Tuesday night while he was in a northwest Omaha park near his home. Fant says a man he recognized came up to his car window, pointed a gun at him and told him to leave.

Police say they saw Matthew Trimble run into a garage and that he later admitted to confronting Fant. Trimble has been charged with making terroristic threats. His attorney did not immediately return a message left Thursday.

Fant played in six games last season as a freshman for the Hawkeyes, making nine catches for 70 yards and one touchdown.
