Eric LeGrand earns degree from Rutgers


Former Rutgers Scarlet Knights football player Eric LeGrand is one of the most inspirational figures in sports. LeGrand was paralyzed on the field back in 2010, but that has not stopped him from accomplishing many of his dreams and continuing to inspire others.

On Wednesday, LeGrand achieved yet another accomplishment and announced on Twitter that he has completed his degree at Rutgers. He was majoring in labor studies.

Rutgers retired LeGrand’s No. 52 back in the fall.

LeGrand remains a key member of the Rutgers football family and they took the time to congratulate him on his accomplishment once it was announced.
