Get Ready for Another Newton on the Football Field

Cam's younger brother Caylin is a rising high school sophomore QB at Nation Ford High School. Can you imagine the expectations some might have for Cam's younger brother, even if he's 10 years younger than the NFLer.

Caylin is playing in Newton's 7 on 7 charity tournament this weekend and is trying to just be one of the participants:

"I don’t have a problem distancing myself from him out here," Cecil Newton said. "I’ve been down that road before. It wouldn’t help him to be coddled or to feel entitled. He has to earn his stripes like every other tournament participant." Cam Newton, who is 10 years older than Caylin, agreed that it was special to have his brother compete in the tournament but that he was just like every other participant.

"I am wishing him just as much luck as every other team out here," Cam Newton said. "He is as influential in my life as anybody else in my family and I am wishing him luck – but to remain unbiased I am wishing a lot of other kids the same amount of luck."

The last I saw of Caylin was this photo back in Cam's Auburn days.

This that photo Caylin has certainly grown but he may never compare in size to his older brother. This prep website lists Caylin at 5'10" 165 lbs. He could still add to that in the next couple of years but 6'5" seems a stretch. That doesn't mean he can't be a very good QB, maybe even great. He has plenty of time to mature so hopefully the Nations Ford fans won't place too pressure on him.
