message: It is not as much as it is who. Eric LeGrand inspires me. He is a football player for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.On October 16, 2010, LeGrand suffered a severe spinal injury during a game against the Army Black Knights in New Meadowlands Stadium. The 6'2", 275 lbs. defensive tackle attempted to tackle Malcolm Brown of the opposing team. They collided, and LeGrand lay on the ground for several minutes before being carted off, apparently only able to move his head. He was taken to the intensive care unit of the Hackensack University Medical Center, in Hackensack, New Jersey, where doctors determined that LeGrand was paralyzed from the neck down. About two weeks later he was transferred to Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, one of the nation's leaders in spinal cord rehabilitation. On January 6, 2011, Rutgers announced that LeGrand had regained movement in his shoulders and sensation throughout his body. In July 2011, LeGrand tweeted photos of himself standing upright and announced that he was steadily regaining movement in his arms. the fact that he was able to move again is inspireing.
