COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The Columbus Cottonmouths have returned home to play their first game since a bus rollover accident, injuring two onboard last week.
Friday was a big night for the Cottonmouths, as they came together not only as a team but as a family for their first home game since the accident.
Our own Paul Stockman was asked by the team to put together a video celebrating the Cottonmouths family as they beat the odds during this emotional time.
A trio of retired Snakes, Craig Stahl, Tom Maldonado, and Levi Lind, suited up Friday night for the shorthanded Cottonmouths.
Bechard said these guys can not only fill a spot, they can add some leadership to this very young team.
As for the boys themselves, they're just happy to help the team that gave them a spot all those years ago.
