Eric LeGrand is a former defensive tackle for Rutgers University. In October 2010, he became paralyzed in-game while making a tackle, but has since regained movement in his shoulders and sensation throughout his body. LeGrand is undoubtedly a fighter and during his recovery said "it's not even whether you keep breathing, it's whether you keep breathing how you want to breathe." In 2012, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - then led by LeGrand's former Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano - signed LeGrand to a symbolic contract as an undrafted free agent. Since his injury, LeGrand has begun writing and speaking about his experiences, highlighting a never-say-die attitude and teaching people to persevere even when the chances are slim. Through his novels The Victorious Story of Eric LeGrand (Young Readers' Edition) and Believe: My Faith and the Tackle That Changed My Life, Eric tells the story of how he is rebuilding his life, continuing his education, and pursuing a career in sports broadcasting. LeGrand's remarkable resilience has made him a household name.
