TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama’s second Heisman Trophy is now home.
Crimson Tide running back Derrick Henry received his copy of the Heisman Trophy from the Heisman Trust on the field in Bryant-Denny Stadium during Alabama’s A-Day game on Saturday.
Now, a copy of the trophy is on full display inside the Mal Moore Athletic Facility.
Alabama’s athletic department shared photos of the trophy being set up. It’s perched on a mantle next to Mark Ingram’s, who was in town this past weekend to receive his 2009 ring from the Heisman trust.

Henry ran for an SEC-record 2,219 yards and finished with the highest rushing touchdown total in conference history last season (28) en route to leading Alabama to its fourth national championship in seven years.
He beat out Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson and Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey at the Heisman presentation ceremony in December.
Tide running back coach Burton Burns took a photo in between the two trophies. Burns coached both Henry and Ingram throughout their careers at Alabama. That will surely be used as a recruiting tool, if it hasn’t been already.
