This past weekend there were college graduation ceremonies all over the country, but I assure you none of them were better than Rutgers'.

That's because former Rutgers defensive lineman Eric LeGrand, who was paralyzed in 2010 after suffering a spinal injury during a game, delivered the commencement speech. LeGrand, who recently earned a degree of his own, gave the speech at High Points Solutions Stadium in front of 35,000 people on Sunday afternoon.

And thanks to, we have video of the speech to share.
