Eric LeGrand, former defensive tackle for the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights football team, suffered a severe spinal cord injury and was left paralyzed by a crushing on-field tackle during a heated game with Army. Eric’s book Believe is a remarkable, true account of a courageous young athlete whose unshakable faith, spirit, positive outlook, and rousing motto, “BELIEVE!” would serve as inspiration to legions of fans—and as motivation in his own quest to walk again. Eric’s story received national attention, heavily covered by ESPN and Sports Illustrated. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Eric to a symbolic contract as an undrafted free agent in May 2012. In 2017, LeGrand was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as the third recipient of the Warrior Award. Students will hear how Eric overcame the odds and became a leader and a role model.
