football at a young age. He dominated backyard games with his older
brother and friends. After an impressive junior year at Westlake High
School, Newton was heavily recruited by colleges throughout the U.S.,
ranking #2 on the 2007 Rivals.com prospect
list. Newton won the 2010 Heisman and led Auburn to the 2011 BCS
National Championship. Newton was selected by the Carolina Panthers as
the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. He broke several NFL
records during his rookie season and garnered honors such as the Pepsi
Rookie of the Year Award and AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Honors.

Newton is the only player in the modern era to be awarded the Heisman
Trophy, win a national championship, and become the first overall pick
in the NFL draft all in the same one-year span. During the 2015 season,
