For Moore, a special day came in the form of a proposal Sept. 29, just weeks after the injury. Everett and Moore are planning their wedding later this year and looking forward to eventually starting a family.
Everett knows he will never be 100 percent again. He still battles decreased sensation and strength, as well as fatigue. And while he will not play football again, coaching is not out of the question.
This week, the story of Everett's life and recovery will be published in a book called "Standing Tall: The Kevin Everett Story," written by Sam Carchidi.
"It was probably God telling me, you know, trying to tell me something," Everett said.
"Do you think God intended for you to do something different in your life?" Woodruff asked.
"I think so," Everett said, but he doesn't know yet what that is.
"I'm still trying to find that out," he said with a laugh.
For all his life, Everett's goal was glory on the gridiron.
But as the legendary coach Vince Lombardi once said, "Real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That's real glory."
