WATCH: Devon Gales walks with help of training equipment, staff

12 steps. Devon Gales took a dozen steps on Thursday.

With the help of two physical therapists and training equipment, Gales, who suffered a significant neck injury while playing for Southern University against Georgia in the fall of 2015, walked on Thursday. Watch the inspiring video Gales Tweeted below:

Gales was injured on a kickoff return collision with former Georgia kicker Marshall Morgan. Since then, Gales has been taken in by the Bulldogs as one of their own, initially led by former coach Mark Richt and continued by Bryant Gantt and the current staff.

Gales has appeared at Georgia football and basketball games during the last year and a half since his injury and had a long stay at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta before being able to return home to Baton Rouge.

He has occasionally posted videos of his progress on Twitter, always keeping a positive attitude and maintaining his goal of walking on his own one day. And in February, Georgia announced a fundraising initiative to help the Gales family build a new house

    You know, whenever I get frustrated or down about the crazy, little things going on in my life, the Big Man exposes me to something like this to help me keep a proper perspective! I couldn't be happier for Devon, nor prouder of Dawgnation for their support of this young man! Keep going Devon, we are all pulling and praying for you fervently!
