Southern athletics and the Southern University System Foundation have created a fund to help injured Jaguars football player Devon Gales and his family with medical expenses.
Gales, a redshirt sophomore wide receiver who played at Central High School, suffered a severe spinal injury while blocking on a third-quarter kickoff return during a 48-6 loss at Georgia on Saturday. He underwent successful surgery Sunday at Athens Regional Medical Center and remains in the care of doctors there.
