Eric LeGrand, the former Rutgers player who was paralyzed in 2010 while making a routine tackle against Army, hasn't let his disability stop him from making an impact.
He is an inspiration to millions, and his more than 100,000 followers on Twitter are a testament to how popular he has become.
LeGrand is acutely aware of his growing celebrity, and he is doing everything he can to use his image for good. He recently tweeted a photo of himself signing a painting with his mouth. The artwork will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to charity.

It's unbelievable to see LeGrand so determined to help others. With a spirit like this, it's not hard to see why he's overcome so much at such a young age.
