Eric LeGrand's JimmyV Award Acceptance Speech at the ESPYs

New, comments

The recent news that the Penn State brass covered up their knowledge of the Sandusky abuse is beyond despicable. The death penalty will be coming to Penn State and I won't shed a tear. I like to focus on the positives in life, and what better human being is there at this moment in sports to rally a message than Eric LeGrand? His story bleeds courage and motivation. Here's his acceptance speech for the JimmyV award last night. Fittingly, LeGrand, now with the Bucs, ends his speech by quoting Jimmy V, saying, "Don't give up. Don't ever give up." You might want to have some Kleenex handy.
