Cam Newton paid for, and was present at the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte holiday party last night. The photos that came from the event are just as awesome as you would imagine.
Word cannot explain how proud I am of the Carolina Panthers' quarterback. I know that I wasn't nearly as selfless as Cam is when I was 23-years-old, and his willingness to be an ambassador for the community is truly awe inspiring. Given some of the recent tragedies in the NFL it's heart-warming to see a player having a positive impact, and potentially changing the lives of children who are at risk to make poor life choices.
Touchdowns and interceptions, clutch runs and sacks -- they're all a footnote to these kind of actions in the community. Kudos to Newton, and the Carolina Panthers for making it all possible.
