O. L. E. R. O. L. L. and always the handicapped side because I wanted to represent me and people with disabilities and make them feel comfortable in your skin because people wear the shirt it makes them feel accepted like you know when people with disabilities sometimes they get you know looked on different partners differently and things of that nature so wondering feel more accepted came out with this Ed for the month of October national disabilities awareness month so I wanted to have the white ones where I can make them for people to donate money to charity so I wanNA raise awareness but also funds are going to go to team granted Dana Refoundation so one day we can find a cure for paralysis you know you're you're amazing absolutely amazing and you're actually funny too the stage I didn't realize you had like a little bit of comedian in you and you just put everybody at ease you know we all see you in your wheelchair we all that you got hurt playing football and we know that what you've been dealing with much like Mikey Nicholls how he got hurt playing hockey and what what gives you the motivation to get up every warning and continue to fight honestly the people that don't get the opportunities like I'm getting right now I see them still on a weekly basis when I go to therapy on Tuesdays and Thursdays as those people that unfortunately don't have the same platform I do don't have the same support that I do just don't have the same Laflin general that I do and I kinda WanNa be that was for them you WANNA use my platform give them hope because you hear so many stories now being in the spinal cord injury world I'm always approached by people either on instagram I am twitter out in public messaging me tell me about this person got hurt Versa Eric how can you help this person how can you help that person he's injuries don't stop so it just makes me get up and motivates me that I want to help these other people and of course I want to be able to go back to metlife Stadium and walk off that field one we're talking to Eric Legrand on boomer and Geo on the fan across the country on CBS sports network what's the first thing that you tell somebody who is going through what you're going through in this this new world that they have entered in the the fight and all the you know some of the things that they're going to have to deal with what's what's the first thing that you tell them that seems to resonate with them to get them to the place where you are now which is just always exuding the positivity that you have I always try to tell people right away take the time to soak with your family understand what had happened to your life just got turned upside down all right after that I tried to tell life goes on I realized that what does injury no matter what life in time always goes on what are you going to do. time period now after that you're going to sit there and keep our moping keep on soaking and live a miserable life or you have to figure out a way to adjust to a new life a new things around you but as possible to still do things that you want to do it's just you might need a little bit more help and you start to get a new found appreciation on different than this is funny because I never been a TV show guy before my injury I was always busy in college things of that nature now people always ask me like what do you do in your spare time that's like my time for myself which I really do you know when I see you and I see Mikey Nicholls I see the athletes that are still in you the athlete spirit that is a is pumping out of you all the time and I just wonder like you know when you meet somebody that's in your situation that may not have been an athlete that's where it's probably the immediate mental toughness the will never give up the fight it's when you meet somebody like just say a middle aged woman who fell down off the ladder broke her back and now she's injured would you tell someone like her who's never been to the gym in her life and that's why I tried to look I tried to relate it to has there ever been a tough situation your life where things weren't on your way and you had to overcome it who are the people that you leaned on what are the things that you needed to do to get over that you may need to do that times ten now but you still and do it and you cannot be afraid to ask for help I always try to tell people you have to learn to be comfortable being uncomfortable when you get into that more when you learn be comfortable and the situations and helps you out mentally and put you at ease in a lot of situations and once you get to a daily routine for human trained behavior becomes instinct whatever Holland'll games every Saturday I go to my foundation events that I have with the community I've been able to develop being able to do motivational speaking these are things I really enjoy doing and that's why I tried to tell people you may not be able to do everything that I'm doing but look for the things that he can do up to the fullest now the two things that strike me the most when I'm around you and I'm around Mikey Nicholls first off is is your positivity in the light that you guys have when you enter home and the other is the support people that you have around you how proud they are of you guys when I see Mikey's parents how proud they are of him when I see your mommy you could just tell how proud she is of you and that has to mean the world to you right I mean and that's that's something that if you don't have that it's got to be such a tougher speak with the football team there for the coaches show it's still my family workers will always be fam twenty minutes away from there so it's nice to go back to home and it is nice and it's nice to be to be welcome back to home which I'm sure they do for you so how do we get the t shirts yeah so you go on my website Eric Legrand Eric Legrand fifty-two dot com slash shop aw come on but yes go to Grad fifty two dot com
