Ingram Wins Heisman

Flint's own Mark Ingram, Jr. won the Heisman Trophy last night, becoming the first Alabama Crimson Tide player to win the award. Ingram barely beat out Stanford's Toby Gerhart, in what became the closest 1st-to-2nd finish in Heisman voting history. Ingram, going into this year's National Championship, has 1,542 yards on 6.2 YPC (my favorite stat, and boy is that high!), as well as 18 touchdowns. The ceremony was attended by Ingram's mother and grandparents.

It stinks the Spartans couldn't suck him into East Lansing when we had the chance, but Saban used to be an assistant when Mark Ingram, Sr. played for MSU. Bobby Williams was also said to be instrumental in Ingram's recruitment to Tuscaloosa. On top of his Heisman accolades, Flint Mayor Dayne Walling named yesterday "Mark Ingram, Jr. Day" on behalf of the Flint Southwestern Academy alum.
