Fantastic news: Keyontae Johnson, the star Florida Gators player who collapsed on the court during last week’s game against Florida State, released a video today giving thanks for everyone’s prayers and support as he was hospitalized in critical condition.

“First and foremost, I would like to thank God,” Johnson said. “I know y’all have been sending y’all’s prayers out the last few weeks and me and my parents are very grateful for the prayers that have been going out.”

Johnson also thanked doctors and medical staffers at the hospitals where he was treated. He closed his message with a Gator chomp and a “Go Gators!”

This is an awesome pick-me-up as we head into a loaded sports weekend.
