On October 16, 2010 Rutgers defensive lineman Eric LeGrand suffered a spinal cord injury after making a play during a kickoff against Army that paralyzed him from the neck down. Since then, his road to recovery has been well documented as LeGrand and the entire Scarlet Knights community have embraced his BELIEVE campaign and the plan to walk on his own again one day.
The experience has also brought LeGrand close to the entire Army football program, as the Black Knights have joined college football fans everywhere in support of LeGrand's miraculous recovery.
In Episode 8 of Game of Honor you can see how the experience has effected the Army players, and the unique bond they now share with LeGrand. Watching this episode will also be an opportunity to give back, as CBSSports.com will make a contribution to the Wounded Warrior Project for every view of the video.
You can check out the rest of the Game of Honor Webisodes here, and don't forget the annual Army-Navy showdown will be aired Saturday, Dec. 10 on CBS and streamed LIVE on CBSSports.com.
