ABC’s Bob Woodruff Reports on UCLA Concussion Victim
E:60 (Tuesday, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN)

Internationally recognized ABC journalist, Bob Woodruff, contributes his first ESPN feature for Tuesday’s E:60, a 12-minute piece about former UCLA linebacker — and the Bruins’ 2011 Defensive Player of the Year — Patrick Larimore, who retired prior to this season due to multiple concussions.

Additional stories on this week’s E:60 include Jeffri Chadiha’s profile of New York Giant Justin Tuck, and Jeremy Schaap’s story about a Madison County, Va. high-schooler, Jacob Rainey, who developed a special bond with the New York Jets’ Tim Tebow after the youth suffered a horrific on-field injury that required amputation of his right leg.

In a special collaboration between E:60 and ABC Woodruff, who suffered a traumatic brain injury covering the war in Iraq in 2006, takes viewers inside Larimore’s story with his own personal understanding of head injuries.

“There is always this relationship between hard news and investigative reporting and sports,” said Woodruff. “They’re all together, they’re all related, and they need to be broadcast. I love well-told storytelling and important stories that show people being a part of the world. I really thought this was something that was important for us to do.”

This was supposed to be a season of triumph for Larimore. Captain and team leader in tackles in 2011, Larimore was projected as an NFL Draft pick. But in mid-August, as his senior season was about to start, Larimore decided not to play another down – ever. Larimore had suffered multiple concussions in spring and summer practices that forced him to the sidelines. Rather than risking his long-term health, Larimore medically retired, giving up his life-long dream of being a professional football player.

“Working with Bob on his first feature for ESPN – a look at concussions in college football – has been an honor and a privilege,” said E:60 Executive Producer Andy Tennant. “His years of reporting experience, his intimate knowledge of the effects of brain trauma, and his passion for sports, made this an ideal collaboration. It has added a new and powerful dimension to our show.”


Eric LeGrand: Believe
Outside the Lines (Sunday, 10 a.m., ESPN2)

Believe was a word that Eric LeGrand used to motivate himself as a member of the Rutgers football team. It was a word that sustained him through a devastating injury that left him paralyzed. And, it is a word that he continues to live by and share with others as he fights toward his ultimate goal of being able to walk again. Tom Rinaldi follows the journey of a young man whose personal motto has become a public inspiration.

“You know, I believe God chose me to do this – to help other people out and inspire other people in their situations.”  – Eric LeGrand

“I think that’s the inspiration that Eric wants to give people, you know, around the world: ‘You can do this. Keep fighting. Keep chopping. You know, ‘Believe.’” – Greg Schiano, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach and former Rutgers head football coach


Quote the Raven
Sunday NFL Countdown (Sunday, 10 a.m., ESPN)

When you pop in the Madden 13 video game, the first image is of Baltimore Ravens’ linebacker Ray Lewis in a locker room giving a motivational address to the viewer. Lewis’ speeches on and off the field have become legendary, from his pre-game “dogs in the house” huddle, to his impassioned, end-of-season oratory after the Ravens’ crushing defeat in the AFC Championship game. Perhaps unknown, Lewis’ motivational rhetoric has been heard outside the confines of NFL fields and locker rooms, in other leagues, sports and venues, engineering immediate and dramatic results. Rachel Nichols reports.

“When I feel something needs to be addressed, I’ll say it. And a lot of people won’t. A lot of people keep it to themselves. I don’t want to keep it to myself. So I’d rather share it.” – Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens’ Linebacker

“It seemed like every time he gave a good point, the thunder would come in and rock the building”. – Jason Swepson, Elon College Head Football Coach

“You look around the room and I was looking at all the guy’s eyes as well. Those kids you could see they were connecting with what he was saying.” – Johnny Dawkins – Stanford Head Basketball Coach

“It’s very scary, I’ll be honest when he stares (chuckle) you in the eyes. You feel like he’s stared straight into your soul.” ­– Patrick Laconi, Baltimore Loyola University Lacrosse Player


Te’o Helps Notre Dame, Notre Dame Helps Te’o
College GameDay (Sunday, 10 a.m., ESPN)

Manti Te’o, a Hawaiian linebacker who is also a devout member of the Church of Latter-Day Saints, had no idea where Notre Dame was located. Yet, four years later, he will leave Notre Dame as one of the most beloved and decorated defensive players in the program’s 125-year history. But it took the recent deaths of both his grandmother and his girlfriend to make Te’o realize home is where the heart is, and his heart is in Notre Dame. Gene Wojciechowski reports on how faith, family and football have helped Te’o during the most difficult time of his life.

“It was just, ‘Why me? Why them? Why all in one day? Just six hours ago I found out my grandma passed away, and now you take the love of my life.’ It was a very dark time.” – Manti Te’o, on the loss of his grandmother and girlfriend
