The relationship between UGA and Devon Gales, a Southern University player who severely injured his spine when the teams met in September, continues to strengthen.
Gales celebrated his 22nd birthday on Monday and heard from several UGA players who wanted to wish him a happy birthday on Twitter.
Today I celebrate my 22nd birthday. I am blessed to be surrounded by my parents & so many people who care for me. GOD is good all the time!
