My daughter who attends Auburn University sent me this article.

Many of you know and some don't, know I work overseas supporting our troops. Every year I try to take my daughters to a Panther game when I come home on R & R. I was lucky enough to take them to this game. What a great treat for my girls and giving me my chance to see my beloved Panthers.

One thing I have truly admired about Cam is the love for the game and how he gives the balls away to some lucky kid. This is a story about one of those lucky kids and how it impacts him and his father.

Hope you like it as much as I did. I am very happy that Cam Newton will be the face of this franchise for many years to come.

I thought so too. Couple typos but very well written. I remember the play. What an exciting game that was.

Not trying to be a dick or anything but I say a lot of misspelled words in there.

The spelling didn't make it special. The content did.

Loved it.

I love the story! Very inspiring... I remember seeing it, too. Cam is doing everything right, IMO. He's been clean, proper, and most importantly he's generated a lot of new and young fans as well as rejuvenated a lot of preexisting fans at the same time. I guess that's why I am on such a Cam-high. Normally the negative and missed opportunities haunt me after a season ends, but this time it's different... I feel like we won something.

I guess we all know where little Parker will be going to college.

Great story.

Everytime I read stories like that, I can't help but remember watching those video-clips of Cam going to the local Elementary school and volunteering his time. He wasn't asked...No one probed him...He simply did it because he wanted to give back.

I remember the Principal telling the story that she didn't know who Cam was and he never let on. She said when she found out, what impressed her most about Cam was that he was a man of his WORD. She said he would promise the kids that he would return and he didn't let them down. Even though he could have made excuses because of his games but he didn't. He kept his promise.

Sadly, that's not the Cam American got introduced too. Instead they were introduced to a "media created" image that was negative and laddened with pure stereotypical stigmas that unfortunately was way to easily accepted by many in this time and age.

No Kidding... The one story that sticks with me was the Sportswriter saying his smile was fake and so was he.

The man loves to win and expects to win. He is raising the Bar in Carolina and hopefully he will bring that attitude for a long time here in Carolina.

He is very genuine and I am thrilled he loves the Kids because those kids are the next generation of Panther fans. Soon our fan base will have less and less Packer, Steeler and Cowboy fans and more Panther fans.
