144 years of college football at Rutgers, and on September 14, 2013, we have the first number to ever be retired by the program. It couldn't have happened to a better person, and I hope all of you get a chance to check out Team LeGrand and help support Eric and the fight to beat paralysis. If you haven't seen them yet, or would like another look, here is a video and a gallery of pictures from the halftime ceremony:
