Eric LeGrand -- Paralyzed College Football Star To Be Honored with Manliest of Man Awards


Former Rutgers star Eric LeGrand -- the paralyzed NFL hopeful who was symbolically drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- is about to receive another manly honor ... courtesy of the manliest men's men in TV.

A rep for Spike TV tells TMZ, the network is planning to award LeGrand the first ever GUYSMAN TROPHY at the Guys Choice Awards tomorrow -- and it will be presented to him by famed manly man Ray Liotta.

LeGrand -- a star defensive tackle for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights -- suffered a severe spinal injury during a game in 2010, leaving him paralyzed from the neck down.

LeGrand has made considerable progress recently though ... even regaining some movement in his arms. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
