WESTBURY - Today marked the grand opening of an Eisenhower Park playground built for kids with special needs, and the celebration included a very special visitor.Former Rutgers University football player Eric LeGrand, who was paralyzed during a game in 2010, came to the park's opening and met with local kids. LeGrand was initially told he'd be a quadriplegic and would have to remain on a ventilator, but within weeks, he was breathing on his own and has since worked to stand with the aid of a frame.Paul Lawless, of Rockville Centre, brought his son Connor to meet LeGrand."He's truly inspirational," Lawless said. "Just to have him shake hands with my boy, it was really something else."LeGrand's dream of being in the NFL came true earlier this week when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers made him an honorary member. He's set to graduate from Rutgers this year.
