New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott has never met paralyzed Rutgers linebacker Eric LeGrand, but something made him want to help him.
Scott became a bit of a sensation after last year's Jets win against the Patriots in the NFL playoffs. In an interview with ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, Scott exclaimed "Can't wait!" at the thought of meeting the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC championship game. The off-the-cuff catchphrase took on a life of its own and Scott decided to trademark it and turn it into a clothing line.
Now he's taking all of the profits he's making from the "Can't wait" catchphrase and giving it to the "LeGrand Believe Fund."
"I've never met him but I heard he's a great kid," Scott told NFL.com. "He has a lot of concerns and needs right now, but I know someday he will walk, and that's something I can't wait for."
