    Inspirational Football Stories? Give me a link to a story of a story that’s inspirational like Eric LeGrand of Rutgers. I would also like a story about how everyone said a certain team couldn’t do something but did it. (Kinda like how the Cardinals won the World Series when no one believed and then they did kinda story but with football).

      My inspirational football story of 2011 has to be Andrea Marsh becoming the first female defensive back to be recruited to play for a college football program: http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/high-schools/article567131.ece

      This really inspired me to continue on here, giving out positive and encouraging answers, when I wanted to quit Yahoo! Answers in late September (when I had just a little over 1500 Best Answers, and was #9 on the Leaderboard). If not for that story, I would have never come close to passing Lil Tsunami for #3 on the Leaderboard for this section, let alone by the end of 2011.

  • What Is The Position Called That Eric LeGrand Landed In When He Got Paralyzed? What was the stiffened position that Rutgers’ player Eric LeGrand landed when he got hit? I am an athletic training student and we have been assigned to find it, and I can’t find it anywhere.

    • Curator says:

      Not sure exactly what you are asking, but his condition is called paraplegia or tetraplegia – he is paralyzed from the neck down.l

  • Zaaa zaaa says:

    Has The Condition Of Eric LeGrand Improved Yet? Does He Have Feeling Or Movement Below Neck? Prayers go out to him, definitely hope he recovers

    • Curator says:

      The last update I heard, he has some feeling in his hands, but doctors say he wil not be able to walk again. Like you said, prayers go out to he and his family.
