Cameron Jerrel Newton, native of College Park, Georgia, joined a fraternity that is extremely well respected. Cam became the third Auburn player to receive the Heisman Trophy. Newton received 729 first place votes with a long stretch from second place finisher, Andrew Luck quarterback from Stanford. LaMichael James, Oregon flash lighting finished third and Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore finished fourth.
Cam Newton totally dominated the SEC (Southeastern Conference), 6’6 frame 250 pounds with explosive COD (change of direction), burst and acceleration and a nose for the goaline. He has the size of a power forward and mind set of a champion that will rip your heart out on the battle field. He threw touch downs, ran for more and even caught a pass for a score. He finished with 1,409 yards, 21 touchdowns and 2,589 yards passing.
Cam struggled all year long with the controversy from his father Cecil Newton’s sins of bribing or better yet extortion of 180,000 from Mississippi State representatives. Newton picked Auburn University over Mississippi State, despite his relationship with Mississippi State Head Coach Mullen (former Florida assistant coach) and his family. While the NCAA cleared Cam of any wrong doing, Cecil was told not to come around Auburn Athletics. While an ongoing investigation by the FBI and NCAA is proceeding, the best football player in college football will led his team in the National Championship game.
Cam Newton denies any and all wrong doing! By the way, Cam’s father didn’t accompany his son to New York City for the biggest event of his son’s life to date. Cam mentioned his father in his speech, “My Father who I love, gave me words of encouragement”.
Newton is eligible as a player and is currently in good standings with the NCAA. He plans on leading his team against the University of Oregon in 2011, and delivering the National Championship Trophy to the War Eagle Nation.
Cam started his collegiate career at the University of Florida, while competing on the football field, he fell short in both academics and was arrested for issues with obstruction to justice and stolen item (computer).
He then enrolled at Blinn Junior college in Texas. He led that team to a JUCO National Championship in 2009. What are the chances and really how many times has this happened before. When a player wins the National Championship in JUCO and leads a team in the SEC (the best conference in all of college football in my opinion) to a National title.
It will be a battle of two high powered spread offenses that score at will. A quarterback in Newton has willed his team to win all year and will again deliver the National Championship Trophy to the War Eagle Nation. Congrats Cam Newton on your Heisman Trophy and good luck in the National Championship Game. The next question, are you declaring for the NFL?? a sure lock for the first round in the 2011 NFL draft if he decides to declare.
