Matthew Newman returns home

Posted: Updated:

HIGHLAND--Matthew Newman, the high school football player temporarily paralyzed during a game, will bring in the new year at home.

A hard hit during overtime put Newman in the hospital for three months; he returned home Tuesday night.

His family turned down an interview request, saying they're happy to be home but are still trying to get settled.
