Alan and I were lucky enough to have Isabella Picard on episode 21, and on that episode she mentioned how much of an inspiration a man named Eric Legrand was to her.So when Alan and I locked down a date with Eric, we knew Bella would love to join us! Eric Legrand is a former college football star, public speaker, and a giant motivator for so many people.During a Rutgers University football game, Eric, a standout defenseman, tackled an opposing player then fell to the ground motionless. He was rushed to Hackensack University Medical Center, where doctors diagnosed a C3-C4 injury.Paralyzed from his neck down and on a ventilator, Eric was not about to be defeated. When he was well enough, he was transferred to Kessler’s Center for Spinal Cord Rehabilitation for an intensive program. He believed that he would beat the odds and breathe on his own. He believed that he would regain sensation and function. And he believes that one day he will walk.Eric focuses on these goals with an athlete’s discipline and a champion’s spirit, pushing himself hard and never questioning “why.” He’s benefited from advanced treatment, including participating in the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Neuro-Recovery Network at Kessler, along with the unwavering support of his family and a legion of fans across the countryWe took a trip down to New Jersey to chat with Eric (Who is breathing, laughing, and making jokes on his own!) and got to meet his incredible mother as well. We talked about his injury, how his perspective changed after, how he still pushes himself to fear chase, incredible friends and why holding yourself accountable is super important.. among many other topics As serious as some parts of this talk were, we also shared a bunch of awesome laughs. Truly one of the best days of our lives being able to spend the day with Isabella and Eric.Eric’s book, Believe: My Faith and the Tackle That Changed My Life can be found on Amazon and his TV series “Mission Possible” can be found on https://www.foxsports.com/watch/mission-possible/video !
