NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Months after tweeting a picture of himself standing with the assistance of a machine, Eric LeGrand continues to inspire.

The paralyzed Rutgers player will lead Greg Schiano’s Scarlet Knights onto the field for Saturday’s game against No. 25 West Virginia.

It will mark the first time LeGrand will be joining the team coming out of the tunnel at High Point Solutions Stadium since he was hurt making a tackle against Army in a game at the Meadowlands last season.

LeGrand, who serves as an analyst on the Rutgers Radio Network, will be on during his normal spots on the pre- and post-game show, as well as halftime. He is also scheduled to be on the network television broadcast.

In addition to his role on the Rutgers Radio Network, LeGrand has done studio television work at SNY and CBS.
