9780062226310: Believe: My Faith and the Tackle That Changed My Life

Believe is the profoundly moving story of Eric LeGrand, the former defensive tackle for the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights football team, who suffered a severe spinal cord injury and was left paralyzed by a crushing on-field tackle during a heated game with Army. A remarkable true account of a courageous young athlete whose unshakable faith, spirit, positive outlook, and rousing motto, “BELIEVE!” would serve as inspiration to legions of fans—and as motivation in his own quest to walk again—Eric’s story has received national attention, heavily covered by ESPN and Sports Illustrated. It will lift the hearts of every reader, not least of all those who were affected by quarterback Tim Tebow’s bestselling memoir, Through My Eyes.

From the Back Cover:

The powerful story that has captivated the sports world and inspired many to believe in miracles

On October 16, 2010, during a college football game against Army, a crushing tackle left Rutgers defensive lineman Eric LeGrand paralyzed from the neck down. The months to come would be a long, grueling, and emotional road to recovery but also a remarkable, transformative journey—one so profound that Eric would call the time since his accident the best years of his life.

In this moving memoir, Eric tells the uplifting story of how he is rebuilding his future with faith. Doctors said that he would never again breathe without a ventilator. Five weeks later, he astonished them by drawing breath on his own. A year after the accident, the nation watched as he led his Rutgers teammates onto the field in his wheelchair.

Now Eric is on his way to graduating from Rutgers University, has a budding career as a sports broadcaster, and uses his experience to spread a message of faith and positivity. Believe is a truly inspiring story of finding purpose in pain and facing setbacks with strength.
