How Cam Newton Became Super Cam: The Untold Story


Super Cam Newton has become one of the biggest names in sports today and he’s only 27 years old. How did Cam become Super Cam? What are the secrets behind his success? Is he really that good? These are some of the questions that we’re going to explore in this article and my opinion on what makes him so unique and important to the NFL today.

Early Days

Born in 1990, Cam Newton was a kid who loved playing football and excelled at it. With a father who coached his pee-wee team and instilled a love of the game from an early age, it was only natural that Newton would become an excellent player. Playing quarterback in high school, he led his team to three state championships with his powerful arm and undeniable athletic ability. He attended Auburn University on a full football scholarship and won two national championships as well during his time there.

Auburn University

In 2008, quarterback Cameron Newton led his team to a perfect season and an undefeated national championship, the first in Auburn’s history. The record-breaking quarterback was selected by the Carolina Panthers as the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft and became just the third player to win college football’s Heisman Trophy, as well as NCAA and CFB National Championship Game Most Valuable Player awards.

Drafted in 2011

Athlete, Cam Newton has achieved many feats in his career. His journey to becoming a super star athlete is an amazing story. He went from Heisman Trophy winner and national champion at Auburn University, to the number one overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft and eventually being crowned MVP of the 2015 NFL season. What makes this incredible athlete even more special is that he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer while playing college football at Florida but overcame it with perseverance and belief.

Carolina Panthers Years

It didn’t take long for the Panthers’ new franchise quarterback to stand out in the NFL. With a breakout rookie campaign, it was clear that this kid had talent and a drive like no other. It would have been easy for him to feel like he made it and coast through his time with the Panthers.

Endorsements, Money and Net Worth

In 2016, Cam released a children’s book he co-wrote called All In with the author and illustrator of Fantastic Mr. Fox, Roald Dahl. The book details Cam’s childhood and talks about what it was like to grow up as an African American in the South during the 1950s and 1960s. It highlights his passion for football and how his dedication helped him succeed as a player. Additionally, he has endorsed Krave jerky since 2010.

Off-Field Controversies

The drama of off-field incidents also followed him. In November 2010, during his rookie season, Cam was reportedly one of six people cited in a bar fight at the intersection of 16th and Red River Streets in Austin, Texas.


Cam’s NFL career has been a story of hard work, dedication, and UpCuz. After being selected number one in the 2011 draft by the Carolina Panthers, he went on to win NFL MVP in 2015 and set the NFL single-season record for total touchdowns with 45. A man who is often referred to as Superman may be more aptly described as a super Cam.
