JACKSON - In a news conference held today at his aunt's house, Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand talked about his life since becoming paralyzed and his mission to get out of his wheelchair.
The 20-year-old became paralyzed during a game last fall. LeGrand is determined to walk and is doing better every day. In the news conference, LeGrand said "I believe God's plan is to make me walk again. He's put me through this to inspire a bunch of people to show them his way and believe always in him. And, I will walk again, I believe that."
Doctors are not sure if the defensive lineman will ever walk again. Just six months after a spinal cord injury on the field left him paralyzed from the neck down, LeGrand has regained some movement in his shoulders and more.
LeGrand says his strong faith and discipline from sports keep him focused.
