Former Rutgers Scarlet Knights football player Eric LeGrand is just days away from meeting his favorite player. He will be attending the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos game on Sunday.
He will not be there as a guest of Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Instead, he will be there as a guest of former Broncos running back Terrell Davis.
LeGrand plans to leave for Denver, Colorado on Saturday. He will first attend the Pinstripe Bowl on Friday at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

He will be rooting for his former teammates as they play the Iowa State Cycles. The Scarlet Knights play a little more than an hour from Yankee Stadium.
LeGrand grew up rooting for the Broncos and Davis. When LeGrand and his company arrive in Denver, he will meet Davis then the two will watch the game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
The former Rutgers player was paralyzed during a football game. He was injured in 2010 when he suffered a spinal injury against the Army Black Knights.
Davis spent his entire career with the Broncos from 1995 through 2001. He was a two-time Super Bowl winner — and even was named the Super Bowl MVP for Super Bowl XXXII.
