One other enormous milestone in Keyontae Johnson‘s restoration — the Univ. of Florida basketball star simply did the Gator Chomp from his hospital mattress!!
It has been virtually per week since Johnson collapsed on the courtroom in a recreation in opposition to Florida State. He was hospitalized in Tallahassee and was ultimately transported again to the UF hospital in Gainesville.
Johnson was positioned in a medically induced coma after the incident — however has since woken up and has made great progress in his restoration.
You may see within the new video … Johnson is speaking, smiling and transferring his arms (therefore the “Chomp”). It is all nice to see.
“At the start, I want to thank God,” Johnson says.
“I do know you all have been sending your prayers out the previous few weeks and me and my mother and father are very grateful for all of the prayers which have been going out.”
“To all of the docs and medical employees at Tallahassee Memorial and UF Shands, I simply wish to say thanks for all of the help you gave me.”
“To my Gator Nation and UF athletic household, I simply wish to thanks for all of the prayers you gave out to me.”
Nice to see — and hopefully he’ll proceed to get higher … and perhaps even get again on the courtroom someday quickly.
Johnson is without doubt one of the prime school basketball gamers within the nation and a professional NBA prospect.
