Pray for Eric LeGrand
Rutgers University football player Eric LeGrand was paralyzed in a collision last Saturday on the playing field. Eric is from Avenel, NJ and played High School football for Colonia High School, right on the border with Rahway. Here is an excerpt from the Star Ledger.
At 4:46 p.m. last Saturday, when his neck and helmet smashed against the shoulder of an Army kick returner, the ordinary college life of Rutgers defensive tackle Eric LeGrand was throttled to its core.
According to neurologists, however, that brief, cataclysmic moment, was only the beginning of his injury. In spinal-cord cases such as his, a cascade of physiological crises is unleashed by the initial blow. Assessing the damage caused by these injuries will go a long way toward determining whether LeGrand will ever walk again, neurologists say.

My son will be graduating from Rutgers soon. He will be the tenth person in my wife’s family to get a degree from RU. We are very shaken by this. Please pray for Eric and ask God for a miracle.
