Tuesday, August 30, 2011
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) -- Paralyzed football player Eric LeGrand will work on the Rutgers Radio Network as an analyst.
Coach Greg Schiano announced the move on Tuesday, saying LeGrand will be on the broadcast for a segment during the pregame show, at halftime and on the postgame show for every game this season.
LeGrand began his broadcast career during the Scarlet-White game as the team concluded spring practice. He spent the third quarter calling the action for RVision, the official broadband network of Rutgers Athletics.
LeGrand suffered a spinal cord injury making a tackle on a kickoff return against Army on Oct. 16. The senior continues the rehabilitation process as an outpatient at the Kessler Rehabilitation Center.
