Jon Gruden has man crush on FB Alec Ingold, ‘I love that guy’

I guess you could say it was love at first sight for Jon Gruden when he laid eyes on fullback, Alec Ingold at last years Reese’s Senior Bowl.

Who can forget the monster block Ingold put on now Indianapolis Colts linebacker, Bobby Okereke right in front of his future coach.

Since that moment his love for his now starting linebacker has only grown.

“You watch the first touchdown,” said Gruden of Ingold. “He’s knocking a guy down off his feet. On the goal-line play at the end of the game, he leaves his feet, launches and makes a great play.
