NEW ORLEANS ― For much of the past two years, Mark Ingram has been a fairly visible individual thanks to his talent.

In one fall and winter, he led Alabama, a football program with deep history and national significance, to its first national title since 1992 while also earning the school’s first Heisman Trophy.

A little more than a year later, Ingram saw his name go off the board in the first round of the NFL Draft, heading to New Orleans, who moved up to take the running back.

But it’s what the rookie running back is doing with his platform that makes him stand apart.

Ingram launched his Mark Ingram Foundation on Friday with a “Welcome to New Orleans” luncheon at the Oceana Grill, where 80 people helped give the Saints’ young rookie a firm base on where he can help out.

“The foundation is something that’s real important to me,” Ingram said in between interviews and handshakes. “It’s something I’m living, something I’m going through, something my sisters and I have experienced off and on throughout our lives.”

He has to use his status, cause he ain't got no paycheck yet. LOL
