UGA kicker Marshall Morgan met with reporters Saturday for the first time since before Georgia’s Sept. 26 game against Southern. In that game, Southern’s Devon Gales suffered a spinal fracture on a Georgia kickoff, when Gales was blocking and he and Morgan collided.
“Now that we have the bye week, I want to go visit him” at Atlanta’s Shepherd Center, Morgan said. He held up his helmet, showing a decal bearing Gales’ No. 33.
At an Oct. 1 news conference at Shepherd, Gales’ family asked for prayers for Morgan and his family, as well as for Gales, “because the accident has affected both young men and will change their lives forever.”
Morgan said he heard about that statement, and “I really appreciate that. His family is great. … (I) definitely wish him the best.
“It’s a … sad thing that happened.”
