Ingram Wins Heisman

Posted on: December 13, 2009

Alabama running back was named the 2009 Heisman trophy winner.

Alabama sophomore running back Mark Ingram won the 2009 Heisman Trophy, awarded annually to college football’s most valuable player. In the closest vote in Heisman history, Ingram beat out Stanford’s Toby Gerhart by 28 points to capture the award Saturday night. They were followed by Colt McCoy, Ndamukong Suh, and Tim Tebow. Ingram rushed for a school-record 1,542 yards this season with an amazing 6.2 yards per carry. He is also the third consecutive sophomore to win the prestigious award and Alabama’s first Heisman winner. In his acceptance speech, Ingram became very emotional and thanked numerous people including his parents, coaches, support staff, trainers, and teachers. Ingram and the #1 ranked Crimson Tide are set to face McCoy and the #2 ranked Texas Longhorns on January 7 for the Rose Bowl.
