When was the last time Cam Newton asked someone else for an autograph? Last weekend, when he met Birmingham-based author Amare Small. The 7-year-old showed up to Newton’s promotional stop for his clothing line at an Atlanta-area Belk. He brought with him a copy of his first book, “Operation Back To The Field,” an autobiographical thriller about a boy named Amare whose parents won’t allow him to play football.
Amare, an Auburn fan but an even bigger Cam fan, thought Cam might enjoy it. He gave it to Cam. Cam was touched. Cam asked Amare to sign it for him (“C-A-M.”). Cameras were rolling.
