NFL Draft Prospect RB Mark Ingram Will Be Subway Spokesperson
Published April 20, 2011
"He’s got a great football pedigree, since his dad played in the NFL. We haven’t had a player from Alabama before and most importantly, he’s already a fan of Subway and it's important for us to have a presence in and around an event that delivers as many eyeballs as the NFL Draft does for a mass brand like ours," said Subway CMO Tony Pace. Former Subway college football endorsers include Ndamukong Suh, Michael Crabtree and Reggie Bush.
Ingram will also be on the cover of EA Sports' "NCAA Football 12" video game when it hits retail in July.
