By winning the 75th Heisman Trophy, Mark Ingram Jr. was nationally recognized as the best player in college football last season, but for the people in his hometown of Flint, Mich., nothing he does surprises them.

“His grandfather was great, he’s great, his dad was great,” former NFL wide receiver, Andre Rison said about Ingram in Atwood Stadium on Saturday afternoon. “The Rison family and Ingram family roll together and they ride together like the Tide roll together.”
