Mark Valentino Ingram Jr. will be 31-years old in December and was born in Hackensack, New Jersey. He is the son of a former New York Giants wide receiver, Mark Ingram Sr, and played his first three years of high school football at one school and then transferred in his senior year, all in Michigan.
In his final two seasons, he rushed for 2,546 yards and 38 touchdowns while also playing cornerback. Ingram was also an elite track and field star, specializing in both sprinting and long jump.
Considered a four-star recruit and ranked as the #17 player in the nation in 2008, Ingram chose to attend the University of Alabama. Initially playing behind Glenn Coffee as a rookie, he finished the season with 728 rushing yards and a team-high 12 rushing touchdowns.
In his sophomore season, he rushed 271 times for 1,658 yards and impressive 6.1 yards per carry, and 17 touchdowns. He also caught 32 passes for 334 yards and 3 TDs. This monster season led him to win the Heisman trophy. This was Alabama’s first Heisman award winner, and Ingram was the youngest player ever to win the Heisman.
Before his junior season, he underwent minor knee surgery, which caused him to miss the first game of the season. His back up, Trent Richardson, filled in for him. That season Ingram rushed for 152 times for 875 yards, 13 touchdowns, and also chipped in 21 receptions for 282 yards and another score. Expected to be a first-round pick, Ingram measured 5’9?”, weighed 215 pounds and ran a 4.53-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. Ingram was drafted with the 28th pick in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints.
Ingram has been in the NFL for nine seasons but has only played all 16 games three times. The first eight years of his career, he was with the New Orleans Saints, and in 2019 he signed a three-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
