Eric LeGrand
Rutgers has never retired a jersey number in the programs 144 year history, that's about to

Jason Baum, Senior Associate Director For Communications for Rutgers Athletics send the following tweet:

That was followed by the following tweet from LeGrand:

LeGrand, a former defensive tackle for the Scarlet Knights, was paralyzed in a game against Army on October 16, 2010 making a tackle.

The class and positive attitude that LeGrand has exhibited facing this life challenge has been an inspiration, especially those here at the OSG HQ.

Baum added that once LeGrand begins walking again his number 52 will only be worn on special occasions.
