Eric LeGrand is a source of inspiration, hope and perseverance for so many. A standout high school football player from New Jersey, LeGrand went on to play for Rutgers University and by his sophomore year he led the team with 13 tackles on kickoff coverage and recorded a tackle-for-loss in seven games.

On October 16th, 2010, in his junior year, Eric LeGrand suffered a severe spinal injury during a game against the Army Black Knights in New Meadowlands Stadium. Following a collision against an opposing player, LeGrand lay on the ground for several minutes before being carted off, only able to move his head. He was taken to the intensive care unit of the Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, where doctors determined that LeGrand was paralyzed from the neck down.

Eric LeGrand fractured his C-3 and C-4 vertebrae and, that night, underwent nine hours of emergency surgery to stabilize his spine. Doctors gave him a zero to 5 percent chance of regaining neurologic function — a prognosis his mother never told him. About two weeks later he was transferred to Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, one of the nation’s leaders in spinal cord rehabilitation.

In January 2011, Rutgers announced that LeGrand had regained movement in his shoulders and sensation throughout his body. Then, in July, Eric LeGrand shared photos of himself standing upright and announced that he was steadily regaining movement in his arms.

On October 29th, 2011, the 21-year-old LeGrand, in his motorized wheelchair, led the Scarlet Knights onto the field at Rutgers’s stadium for their game against West Virginia. This moment was chosen by readers of Sports Illustrated as ‘The Best Moment of 2011.’

LeGrand’s tremendous amount of courage, belief and strength throughout his rehabilitation has captured the attention of the nation. He resumed his college classes via Skype and also launched his sports broadcasting career as an analyst for Rutgers Football Radio Network.

A fund named “BELieve” has been set up by the Rutgers Scarlet Knight family to help support the LeGrand family. The “BELieve” Foundation has raised proceeds through selling sporting apparel stitched with LeGrand’s name and number (52) as well as hosting numerous sporting events in LeGrand’s honor. Humbled by the outpouring of support, LeGrand decided to form a charity. Team LeGrand in partnership with the Christopher Reeve foundation was established; proceeds go toward research to find a cure for paralysis and helping improve the quality of life for people with spinal cord injuries.

In April 2012, LeGrand was offered the final spot on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster by his former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano, now the head coach at Tampa Bay. On May 2nd, 2012 LeGrand signed his official NFL contract. In 2012, he also received the prestigious Jimmy V Award for Perseverance at the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles.

In the fall of 2012, LeGrand released his first book, titled BELIEVE: My Faith And The Tackle That Changed My Life, published by HarperCollins. In 2013, his jersey number 52 was retired – the first number in the 100 year history of Rutgers to ever be retired.

Eric LeGrand graduated from the University with a degree in labor studies.
