Garrett Comes Home

Garrett Bryant, center, is hugged by Fossil Ridge basketball coach Matt Johannsen and friend Sammi Burroughs as he arrives home in Fort Collins after being released from Craig Hospital in Engelwood, after he suffered a traumatic brain injury from a fall down stairs Jan. 26 in Garden City, Kansas Friday, April 4, 2014. Bryant, a former Fossil Ridge baseball and basketball player who was playing baseball at Garden City Community College when the accident happened, didn't come straight home: he took a detour to Coors Field for the Rockies’ home opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks with his parents. I made a video. You can see it here.
