KUNA -- An injured football player from Kuna is finally back home this afternoon.

Boone Bartlome flew back to Idaho after a stay at Craig Hospital in Denver.

Boone suffered a severe spinal cord injury while playing in a game last November.

He suffered paralysis and late last year went to Colorado for rehab.

Over the past few months, he's been working every day to regain feeling and movement in his legs and arms.

Our Karen Zatkulak has been following his recovery and is Kuna today where several hundred people gathered to welcome him home.
