Cam Newton’s ‘hidden’ agenda The charismatic Carolina Panthers quarterback is ready to make a diffference

Carolina Panther Cam Newton wasn’t just the NFL’s MVP last year. The Heisman Trophy Award-winning quarterback’s spectacular regular season performance was offset by criticism around his excited touchdown celebrations, which begat Newton’s “dabbing” craze — a move he has recently vowed to end). Despite his behavior during a now infamous post-Super Bowl press conference, the fashion-mad Newton doesn’t shy away from being a role model to sports fans of all ages.


As an athlete, you have so much responsibility to use your influence in a positive way, and to have your message be impactful. Those things are extremely important. To have LeBron, CP3, Carmelo and DWade to be the focal point and, in some essence, to start a movement and be in front … is unbelievable. I’m totally on board if they call me. It’s something that many of us [athletes] are already committed to, where the cameras can’t see — off the scenes … people may not really know the details.
