    It's possible no one in the game of football has had a better, more successful two-year run than Cam Newton.

    In 2010, the 6-foot-5, 250-pound quarterback led Auburn to its first national title in 53 years, winning the Heisman Trophy, the Maxwell Award — given to the nation's top college player — and the Davey O'Brien Award — as the nation's top quarterback. He was also named an Associated Press First-Team All-American and the SEC Offensive Player of the Year.

    After being selected by the Carolina Panthers with the first overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, Newton went on to set not only rookie records at quarterback, but all-time marks. He was named the AP's Offensive Rookie of the Year and was selected to replace Super Bowl-bound quarterback Eli Manning on the NFC's Pro Bowl roster in a season in which he became the first player in NFL history to pass for 4,000 yards and run for at least 500.

    His 4,051 yards passing set an NFL rookie record, while his 14 rushing touchdowns is the most ever by an NFL quarterback in a single season.

    Newton can now add one more accolade to his ever-growing resume as he was selected the Alabama Sports Writers Association's Pro Athlete of the Year.
