Southern University wide receiver, Devon Gales, suffered a severe spinal injury on September 26, 2015 during the Southern-Georgia football game in Athens, Georgia. Devon joined the SU football program as a walk-on and was a redshirt sophomore at the time of his injury.

Southern University athletics department and the Southern University System Foundation developed The Devon Gales Fund in an effort to provide financial assistance to Devon and his family to cover medical expenses.
