Alabama's Ingram might get Michigan highway honor

Alabama running back Mark Ingram poses after winning the Heisman Trophy award on Saturday in New York.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Alabama tailback Mark Ingram already has a Heisman trophy and a national championship.

He might soon have a stretch of highway named after him in his native Michigan.

A bill pending in the Michigan Legislature would designate a stretch of Interstate 475 through Flint the "Mark Ingram Memorial Highway."

Ingram went to high school at Flint Southwestern Academy.

He won the Heisman last season as a sophomore with Alabama. The Crimson Tide beat Texas in the BCS national championship game.

The Senate Transportation Committee is scheduled to consider the bill designating the highway in Ingram's honor on May 4.
