Kurzbeschreibung

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.

Buchrückseite

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

On October 16, 2010, Eric LeGrand's life drastically changed course in a single moment. Eric was known for his skill as a key Rutgers defensive lineman and as a much-loved teammate who could make anyone smile.

During the heated fourth quarter of a tie game against Army, a crushing tackle left Eric sprawled motionless on the ground while the entire stadium went silent with fear and anticipation. Doctors later discovered that Eric's body was paralyzed from the neck down, marking the beginning of a long, grueling, and emotional road to recovery.

What Eric didn't know then, however, was that the months to come would be a remarkable, transformative journey—one so profound that he 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 in the face of hardship. Doctors said that he would never again breathe without a ventilator. Five weeks later, though, he astonished them by drawing breath on his own. He thrilled fans only months later by posting a picture of himself online standing with support during a rehabilitation session. A year after the accident, the nation watched as he led his Rutgers teammates onto the field in his wheelchair—a powerful gesture that was voted best sports moment of 2011 by Sports Illustrated readers.

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 belief and positivity. He also joined the roster of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in May 2012 in a symbolic move that recognized his "character, spirit, and perseverance," said Bucs head coach Greg Schiano.

Though Eric relies on his family, friends, and faith, his belief and hope for a better future make him a role model for anyone who has experienced tragedy or faced daunting obstacles. Believe is a story of finding purpose in pain and facing setbacks with strength.

Von laura cresthull - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I actually purchased this book for my 15 year old son. He was on the freshman high school football team this year and asked if I would get this for him. My son has finished the book and loved it. He would discuss certain parts of the book with me. He thinks of Eric Legrand as a true inspiration and hero. He believes that Eric will walk again one day. My son also tweeted Eric Legrand recently and was beyond thrilled when he tweeted him back. I am a 41 year old mother and now I am going to read it also.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Heartwarming Story of someone Who Won't Give Up 5. November 2012
Von Art - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a heartwarming story of someone, who faced with an extreme difficulties, just won't give up. The story tells of his thoughts and feelings after the accident. He relates the story of those around him, their continual support even two years later. His football Coach at Rutgers who also stayed with him and to this day is still in contact with Eric. Eric also has shown great compassion for those faced with similar problems and continues to work hard so that he may someday walk again. He explains that to him this was a message from God that he has greater things for him to do than to play football. He truly BELIEVEs that his work is not done. Even when he had so many supporters at the hospital, and others had none, he shared is friends with who had few. This is truly an inspiring story of a young man faced with grave problems has triumphed over them personally. My prayers are with you Eric.
