Bleacher Report updated readers on a previous story, reporting that a star varsity football player for the University of Georgia Bulldogs was released from the hospital last week and is on the way to a full recovery after a tragic dirt-bike accident on Halloween following their game against the University of Kentucky.
After playing in UGA’s 14-3 win over Kentucky, the star safety was riding a dirt bike in Athens, GA when a car attempting to make a left turn failed to see him. According to Athens – Clarke County Police, the young man was unresponsive when they first arrived, and he was later diagnosed with a concussion and bruised shoulders, ribs, and various cuts and scrapes.
He was treated and put through a rehab regimen at a local hospital and, as the UGA coach noted, was very lucky to recover so quickly from a serious accident. “It was scary for our team, for everybody in our family, everybody in our organization. It was scary for him and his family,” noted UGA coach Kirby Smart in an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
