Cam Newton Wins AP Offensive Rookie of the Year!!

From panthers website:

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was named Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press on Saturday evening.

Newton received 47 of the 50 votes cast by media members who cover the NFL to become the first Panther to win the award. Defensive end Julius Peppers was named AP Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2002.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton received the other three votes.

Newton, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, became the first quarterback in NFL history - rookie or otherwise - to pass for 4,000 yards and rush for 500 yards in a season. He set a rookie record with 4,051 passing yards, and he rushed for 706 yards while breaking Steve Grogan's 35-year-old NFL record for rushing touchdowns in a season by a quarterback with 14.

His 21 touchdown passes are the third-most among rookies all time, and his 35 total touchdowns are the most by a rookie. He also recorded the two highest passing yardage games for a rookie in NFL history: a 432-yard performance in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers and a 422-yard game in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Newton previously was named rookie of the year by Sporting News and by Pro Football Weekly/Professional Football Writers of America, which also named him offensive rookie of the year and all-rookie.

Newton played in the Pro Bowl last week, along with Panthers center Ryan Kalil and Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith. Kalil recently was named to the All-Pro second team by AP.

Great to see that talent is recognized! Go panthers! I truly can't wait for the next season to begin already and see how far we can go!
