Deadly Decisions

Eric Krug…

was a standout baseball player at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, GA. He was a typical college student….enjoying life, hanging out with friends and having a good time. But this life that Eric knew came to an abrupt and horrific end on his 21st birthday. On that night, Eric made a horrible choice, he and three other friends got into a car that was being driven by a drunk driver. Eric’s baseball career and normal life as he knew it was changed forever!

The drunk driver crashed into trees, killing Eric’s teammate and best friend. Eric was suffering from head trauma and was left in a coma for over a year. Because of the traumatic brain injury that he sustained, Eric lives with complications. He is not able to speak anymore.  He has to use adaptive equipment (ex. ipad) to communicate with others. He has short term memory loss and has difficulties recalling important events in his life. From this horrific crash, Eric has to walk with the assistance of a walker or uses a wheelchair. Eric no longer has the ability to walk on his own.

This is Eric Krug’s new reality…day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year. He cannot play baseball anymore, socialize with the many friends he once had, or live a normal life. That reality is over because he got into a car with a drunk driver. Now he is on a bigger mission. He no longer saves games with clutch double plays; Eric saves lives by sharing his powerful and inspirational story in middle schools, high schools, colleges, churches, and military bases nationwide.

Eric’s inspiring message is delivered through his IPad and voice of his mother, Joyce Krug or Chris Sandy, Eric’s brother in law.  Eric’ s presence on stage is extremely powerful and he captivates audiences with his sense of humor. Eric is one of the most inspirational people students will ever meet. His message is one that sticks for a life time.

Eric is on a mission and his mission is saving lives!
