Golston joins Bulldogs today

Kedrick Golston, the former Sandy Creek High School star, joins the rest of the University of Georgia's incoming freshman in Athens after nine months of uncertainty about whether he would ever play football again.

Bulldogs coach Mark Richt has declared Goston physically ready to play in games as a freshman this season.

On Oct. 22, Golston was involved in an automobile accident that left him with serious injuries, including a broken femur in his right leg.

In addition, fat torn off the bone during the accident lodged in Golston's lungs. He developed a staph infection and spent nine days on a respirator.

At that point, Golston had his doubts about whether he would ever play football again.

After surgery to insert a titanium rod and pin in his leg, Golston started a grueling regime of physical therapy. He continued his physical therapy after graduation under the watchful eyes of Bulldog trainers.
