"I really do believe this is what I was called on to do," LeGrans said when asked about his efforts to inspire people. "Trying to change the world day-by-day and inspire a bunch of people out there. Just helping people out with their daily routine and that this is a miracle over here and believing in myself and believing in the man above. When I do get up on my feet it's really going to show the world that anything is possible and that anything can happen."

LeGrand told WDAE that he really enjoys the motivational speaking.

"When you can't hear a pin drop in that room you know you are getting a really special message across and the people are listening, so I really love that I can do that and get that message across to people that I really want to listen to."

LeGrand's fight to recover after being paralyzed during a game has been, and will continue to be, an inspiration to many.
