The UGA community has been quick to support Devon Gales, but one Heisman Trophy winner’s visit left a real impression on the wide receiver.
Gales suffered a serious spinal injury during Southern University’s game against UGA on Sept. 26. He had surgery at Athens Regional Hospital that weekend and was transferred to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, where’s he been since.
Former UGA running back Herschel Walker told the AJC’s DawgNation.com that he visited Gales at the Shepherd Center with his fiancee Julie Blanchard and former teammate Frank Ros last Sunday.
Gales thanked Walker for the visit over Twitter on Tuesday and seems to be in good spirits.
