“One more day, and it could have burst,” Terence Mathis, D’Wan’s father, said Monday. “I can’t tell you how thankful I am my son is at the University of Georgia and with that medical and training staff.
“We were 745 miles away when all this happened last week, and Coach (Kirby) Smart made sure my son was taken care of the same way he would treat his own children.”
The University of Georgia medical staff rushed Mathis to the emergency room last Thursday after the early enrollee from Romulus, Mich., came to them with severe sinus pain.
“People need to understand this is what makes Georgia a great institution, it’s not just on the football field,” Terence Mathis said. “It’s the people. They’ve had every specialist on hand. My family has been taken care of from the jump.
Mathis was a four-star member of the Bulldogs’ 2019 recruiting class who enrolled early and participated in spring practice this year.
