Devon Gales and Marshall Morgan will forever be linked together by one fateful play in 2015. And their friendship produced a really cool moment over the weekend.
In September 2015, Morgan and Gales collided when Georgia and Southern were playing each other. On the play, Gales ended up fracturing his C6 vertebrae and has been confined since to a wheelchair.
Gales’ story and comeback since the hit has been inspiring. Over the weekend, Morgan got married, and he invited Gales to the wedding. Gales’ mother posted a touching message on her Facebook page, along with some photos from the wedding.
In February, the University of Georgia announced that it was starting a fundraiser to help build Gales and his family a home. For more on how you can donate, follow this link. Former UGA tight end Benjamin Watson has donated over $10,000 to the cause.
