Among the Homecoming festivities at Rutgers this weekend, the Rutgers Athletics Hall of Fame 2020 class was inducted on Friday night, a year later than was originally planned.
The class was headlined by Scarlet Knights football standout Eric LeGrand.

LeGrand is the only Rutgers football player to have his number retired by the program. The former Scarlet Knights defensive tackle was left paralyzed from the neck down after colliding with an Army football player during a game in October 2010.
Before the injury, LeGrand had planned for a career in professional football, entering the NFL and eventually hopes of becoming a sports broadcaster once his playing days were over.
Currently, LeGrand has entered the coffee business, and is managing all aspects of the coffee making process. He is currently marketing his product directly to consumers, and has opened the LeGrand Coffee House.
