Eric LeGrand, who was paralyzed making a tackle against Army on Oct. 16, 2010, has become one of the university's best ambassadors – if not the best – with his attitude and exuberance in light of what happened on the football field almost four years ago. He's become a motivational speaker, earned his degree in January, worked for many charitable causes and had his number retired by the school last year. Heck, he's even been in a Subway ad and on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
