Born May 11, 1989, in College Park, Ga., Cam Newton began playing football at a young age. He dominated backyard games with his older brother and friends. After an impressive junior year at Westlake High School, Newton was heavily recruited by colleges throughout the U.S., ranking #2 on the 2007 Rivals.com prospect list. Newton won the 2010 Heisman and led Auburn to the 2011 BCS National Championship. Newton was selected by the Carolina Panthers as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. He broke several NFL records during his rookie season and garnered honors such as the Pepsi Rookie of the Year Award and AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Honors. After an historic rookie season with 4,051 passing yards, Newton continued his success reaching 3,869 passing yards in his sophomore year. He broke Peyton Manning’s record for most passing yards in a player’s first two seasons and was selected to the Pro Bowl in the 2011 and 2013 seasons.
Newton is the only player in the modern era to be awarded the Heisman Trophy, win a national championship, and become the first overall pick in the NFL draft all in the same one-year span. During the 2015 season, Cam became the first player to win five NFC Offensive Player of the Week awards in a nine-week span within a season and these five awards tied for the most in a season in NFL history (Tom Brady, 2007). Cam received the NFL MVP award, NFL Pro Bowl Honors and led the Panthers to the second Super Bowl in franchise history. The Panthers finished the 2015 season with a 17-2 record.
