Video: Watch Derrick Henry's Family Celebrate In Hospital With His Grandmother After Heisman Announcment

Derrick Henry with his family in the hospital with his grandmother.

Derrick Henry's grandmother, who is currently in the hospital, wasn't able to make it to New York City for the Heisman ceremony, so his family decided to stay behind and gather in the hospital to watch the show together. 

It was an emotional moment when Henry's name was announced as the winner, and his family went absolutely crazy. And once he made it to the stage to make his speech, his grandmother had a chance to hear him speak, thanking her for everything. It was a tear-jerker, and AL.com captured it all on video. 

Henry is the second player in Alabama history to win the trophy, and his family clearly could not be more proud.
