Photo: Amari Cooper Took A Picture With Former Alabama RB Mark Ingram's Heisman Portrait

Few, if any, college football programs are as prestigious as Alabama, but amazingly the school did not have a Heisman winner until 2009, when running back Mark Ingram took home the award. Tonight, Alabama will look to add another Heisman winner to its name tonight, with wide receiver Amari Cooper heading to New York as a finalist for the sport's most coveted award. 

Cooper is already getting ready for tonight's ceremony, and took a picture with Ingram's Heisman portrait. The Alabama great and current New Orleans Saint appreciates the picture.

Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is considered a heavy favorite for tonight's award, but Cooper is also incredibly deserving. Despite being the focus of every defense, Cooper has caught 115 passes for 1,656 yards and 14 touchdowns this year. There may be no more dangerous weapon in all of college football.
