Searching for uplifting headlines from this offseason? I find myself doing it every day, especially in the midst of all the violations, investigations and allegations that seem to have taken over the college football landscape recently. But ever since we first covered Eric LeGrand's injury and paralysis, it seems as though we have had nothing but good news to report as the Rutgers defensive lineman has made his way through the recovery process.

First he reported his own accomplishment of developing some feeling in extremities, and on Wednesday took to Twitter to show people what can result from unmatched perseverance. LeGrand, who was diagnosed by doctors nine months ago as being paralyzed from the neck down, is seen below standing upright.
