Warm Welcome
Warm Welcome — Gleason High School football player and freshman Drake Damesworth visited with family, friends and well-wishers during an open house on Sunday afternoon at the First United Methodist Church in Gleason. Damesworth, who suffered a paralyzing injury to his neck during a football game at McKenzie on Sept. 17, returned to his hometown in recent weeks after spending time rehabilitating in Atlanta since Sept. 29 following surgeries in Memphis. Thanks to his hard work and that of the specialists who worked with him, Damesworth is now able to walk on his own with the use of hand crutches. Visiting on Sunday at the reception were (from left) his mother Andrea Damesworth, Drake Damesworth, his sister Audrea Martin, his father Alan Damesworth, his grandfather Dean Damesworth, Gleason assistant football coach Mike Bennett and his sister Alicyn Martin.      Photo by Sara Reid
