Heisman winner Ingram honored at Flint celebration

FLINT, Mich. — Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram's name now is a part of Atwood Stadium in his Michigan hometown.

Ingram told a crowd Saturday at the stadium in Flint that it was "good to be home." Two signs were unveiled above the stadium's scoreboards stating: "Home of Mark Ingram II, 2009 Heisman Trophy Winner."

The Alabama tailback won the Heisman last season as a sophomore. He went to high school at Flint Southwestern Academy and played at Atwood Stadium.

The Flint Journal reports hundreds of people turned out for the event. The Heisman Trophy was displayed on the stage.

Mayor Dayne Walling proclaimed Dec. 12 "Mark Ingram Day" after he won the Heisman, and said the football star helps bring the community together.
