The Georgia House paid tribute Wednesday to Chance Veazey, the University of Georgia freshman second baseman who was paralyzed from the waist down from a scooter accident last fall.
Veazey thanked the many people who have supported him, particularly UGA baseball coach David Perno and baseball athletic trainer Mike Dillon.
“They haven’t left my side since the accident,” Veazey said. “I love them both.”
Veazey has been paralyzed from the waist down since his motor scooter collided with a car Oct. 28 in Athens.
His friends have set up a fund to help offset medical costs.
