Panthers' Cam Newton Is Ready To 'embrace Charlotte'Cammy CamWe love you cam Savior
During his record-breaking rookie season, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton kept media responsibilities to a minimum and was selective in his appearances at charitable events.
He plans to reach out more into the Charlotte community this year through his foundation, he announced to a crowd of about 200 civic and business leaders Thursday evening at a private event at the Fillmore.
“To a degree, I didn’t know what I was getting into. And that was in large part (because of) a lot on my plate, starting off with the lockout,” Newton told reporters after addressing the attendees at the Fillmore.
“I didn’t know how things were going to pan out. During the season, I wanted to be focused on one thing, and that was winning football games. But now I have the opportunity, where my slate has lightened up somewhat, and I’m here tonight to try to open up and embrace Charlotte.”
Newton, who staged a similar event in his hometown of Atlanta recently, said his foundation will focus on youth initiatives. He did not announce any specific events, but said he plans to sponsor youth camps, 7-on-7 summer football leagues and activities to combat childhood obesity.
Newton, who won NFL Rookie of the Year honors after breaking Peyton Manning’s rookie passing record, said star athletes often become more distant as their fame grows.
“I’m here to show my face and come up with different ventures so that I can make myself accessible and available to the community of Charlotte,” he said.
He was joined by his parents, Cecil and Jackie, his brother, Cecil Jr., an offensive lineman with the Baltimore Ravens, and members of the foundation’s advisory board.
I love how he keeps a relationship with JR, Cam is just amazing.
