Paralyzed Athlete Eric LeGrand Signs On as Sportscaster With Bucs

Published: May 2, 2012

Eric LeGrand is being hailed as an inspiration after he accepted an offer to work as a sportscaster for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The former defensive tackle for Rutgers University was paralyzed from the neck down in October 2010, when he broke two vertebrae in a game against Army — just moments before the game’s end.

Since his accident, LeGrand has been able to stand and walk on a treadmill, with assistance, and he has vowed to walk on his own one day.

A broadcasting major at the New Jersey school, LeGrand resumed his studies in the 2011 spring semester, via video conferences. And in October of that year, he led the Scarlet Knights onto the field before a game in his wheelchair.
