“I 100 percent believe I will walk again in my lifetime,” LeGrand told Carton. “I’m here to help so many other people, and I believe that I’m going to get a bunch of other people walking just like I am, and be able to live their dreams.”
LeGrand and his No. 52 will be honored in a ceremony Sept. 14 when Rutgers plays at home against Eastern Michigan. It will be the first number retired in the history of the program.
Rutgers will have seven home games at High Point Solutions Stadium in 2015.
The game, which will be held on April 27, will allow 22 children — from sixth grade to eighth grade — affected by Superstorm Sandy to participate in the final five minutes of the contest.
The feel around this game should be like 2006, when the Scarlet Knights upset the Cardinals, then the No. 3 team in the nation. Now, on Thursday night, Rutgers needs that same special moment created by the best atmosphere in program history.

If Rutgers hopes to once again live up to being a part of the national conversation, a win over the Mountaineers is imperative.
