Football, Family, Faith...And Disability? Shaquem Griffin And Eric LeGrand, Two Lionhearts Of The NFL, Make Their Mark On The World

I first saw Eric LeGrand, former defensive tackle, on ESPN being honored at the Espy’s and was a fan of his outlook and incredible story for years. After we met virtually earlier this year, I immediately reached out to interview him. Days later, Shaquem Griffin’s team reached out. It just seemed like kismet. Here I was, a woman with no knowledge of football, and two men making history in the NFL were suddenly in my midst. I intended to write separate pieces about Eric LeGrand and Shaquem Griffin, their philosophies, work and philanthropy, but after talking to both of them separately and seeing so many powerful common themes in their lives, it became obvious that whether they know each other well or not, they had kindred ideals, that we can all learn from.

Rutgers’ Eric LeGrand’s ‘A Walk to Believe’ will be virtual again in 2021: Here’s how you can participate and help

Eric LeGrand did what he does best: Break records. The coronavirus pandemic forced the inspirational former Rutgers player to cancel his 10th annual “A Walk to Believe” 5K run/walk/roll last June, scuttling his plans for a milestone bash. So LeGrand quickly pivoted and made the event virtual, getting participants from all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well from 10 countries, to set a fundraising record for Team LeGrand and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation for spinal cord research.
