Congratulations to Mark Ingram for becoming the the first University of Alabama football player to win the Heisman Trophy. You can see his acceptance speech by clicking here.

I grew up only a few miles from the campus of the University of Alabama during the Bear Bryant years. Alabama is certainly one of the storied programs in America. Every program has its peaks and valleys, and it’s good to see the great things which are happening for the Crimson Tide.

Davonia and spent the better part of the week in St. Louis at the National Staff Development Council Conference. Without exception, every person with whom we interacted made some reference to the University of Alabama football team.

Congratulations to Ingram and best wishes to this great team as they prepare to play the University of Texas for the BSC National Championship.
