Welcome to the NFL Eric Legrand

​It’s no secret to those who know me that I love college football. The excitement that comes with each Saturday during the season is something that is hard to explain to the yet to be initiated. I have a few teams that I pull for (I am a notoriously huge University of Miami fan), but there aren’t many major college football programs near where I live on Long Island. Due to this, my brother and I adopted the Rutgers Scarlet Knights as our semi-local college football program. This is why the tragedy of Eric Legrand was something that hit home with me.

For those of you who don’t know, Legrand was paralyzed from the neck down during a Rutgers football game in 2010. He was able to battle back and lead the Rutgers football team out of the tunnel a year later. While he still hasn’t fully recovered from his terrible injury, he is using social media to help inspire others who may be going through hard times. Legrand is using his unfortunate situation to motivate others to reach their maximum potential. Social media doesn’t have to fill your life with Facebook ads and marketing message, it can be used to open up your views and inspire you.

Legrand’s former coach, Greg Schiano, recently became the head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and made Legrand one of his first signings. Legrand’s dream of becoming a member of the NFL finally came true, and although his role with the team is still unclear it is a story that will serve to inspire many. Life can be tough, but never give up fighting. Even when your dream seems out of reach keep moving forward. It worked for Eric Legrand and it can work for anyone.
