The profoundly affecting story of the former Rutgers defensive tackle who was left paralyzed after a devastating football accident, and how his faith, positive outlook, and motto “BELIEVE” inspire legions of fans and guide him in his quest to walk again.
On October 16, 2010, during a college football game against Army, a crushing tackle left Rutgers defensive lineman Eric LeGrand paralyzed from the neck down. The months to come would be a long, grueling, and emotional road to recovery but also a remarkable, transformative journey—one so profound that Eric would call the time since his accident the best years of his life.
In this moving memoir, Eric tells the uplifting story of how he is rebuilding his future with faith. Doctors said that he would never again breathe without a ventilator. Five weeks later, he astonished them by drawing breath on his own. A year after the accident, the nation watched as he led his Rutgers teammates onto the field in his wheelchair.
Eric LeGrand is a student at Rutgers University and a former defensive lineman and special teams player for the Scarlet Knights. Eric is an honorary member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he has received the Jimmy V Perseverance Award during ESPN's annual ESPY awards show.
Mike Yorkey is a veteran writer with more than seventy books under his belt, including the Playing with Purpose and Every Man's Battle series.
