Eric LeGrand’s story is an inspirational one, perfect for fresh-faced college graduates. LeGrand was paralyzed from the neck down four years ago while playing in a game for the Rutgers football team, and after years of determination and patience, he received his diploma from the university this spring.

There was some drama before the event, but LeGrand ended up giving a commencement speech at the university’s graduation to cap off his college career.

FOX Sports had cameras following LeGrand on his graduation day, and the behind-the-scenes video of the culmination of all of LeGrand’s hard work is sure to inspire. Check it out in the video below.
