WOODBRIDGE - This Sunday will mark one year since former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand was paralyzed while making a tackle on a kick return against Army.
LeGrand, then a 270-pound defensive lineman for the Scarlet Knights, fractured his C3 and C4 vertebrae.
The 21-year-old is wheelchair-bound, but he leads a full life and says he believes he will walk again one day.
LeGrand does physical therapy three days a week. He's working on his degree at Rutgers, taking classes three nights a week online.
He is also doing football analysis during pregame, postgame and halftime of Rutgers radio broadcasts.
