WR Gerald Gales Returns to Lions

October 22, 2008 - American Indoor Football Association (AIFA) - Columbus Lions News Release

(COLUMBUS, GA)- The Columbus Lions have inked another starter from last years' 10-4 team. Wide receiver Gerald Gales (5-10, 185) out of West Alabama will return to the Lions after a solid 2008 season. He led the team and ended up 2nd in the league in all-purpose yards per game with 108.5. Gales finished with 70 receptions for 889 yards and 18 TD's in only 10 games. He missed the final 4 regular season games after injuring his right knee against Mississippi. The Birmingham, AL native returned to the lineup for the teams' playoff game in Tupelo where he scored 3 TD's on only 5 catches.

Gales recently underwent surgery to repair ligaments in his injured right knee and scheduled to be near 100% when the season begins. Head Coach Jason Gibson is excited to get a healthy Gales back in the lineup. "GG is so important to our offense because he can do it all. He can stretch the field, catch screens and make people miss, and he's makes the catches on third down that keeps the chains moving. Having him back and healthy will be a huge boost."
