Eric LeGrand, Paralyzed Rutgers Player, Doesn't Feel Sorry For Himself
JACKSON, N.J. -- Paralyzed Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand doesn't believe in feeling sorry for himself, getting angry or wondering "Why me?"
It's not his style.
The 20-year-old believes he was paralyzed from the neck down in October for a reason, with the primary one being fate knew he would be able to handle it and persevere.
Six months after being hurt in a game against Army, LeGrand is fighting on. He's going to rehabilitation. He's finishing off an economics course. He's thinking about becoming a sportscaster. And, he's believing, with all his might, that he one day will walk again.
LeGrand expressed all those views on Monday in his first open meeting with the media.
