He was also named MVP of the 2015 NFL season and he helped lead his team to Super Bowl 50 in 2016. Cam was born May 11, 1989 he started playing football at age 6. He grew up in the middle of three brothers in downtown Atlanta in a small house. He is a very generous human being and always gives back to where he came from. This is another reason why he is my hero. And I want to be like him. He cares for his family and community that he grew up with. He hosts camps and teaches little kids that want to be as good as him or better. He teaches kids and tells his story of how he did it and how he went through some rough…show more content…

Cam doesn’t just think about himself. He also has football camps for everyone to go to. He goes to schools and gives motivational speeches to young kids. He has respect for all kids even ones who are not as gifted as others and who may have something mentally and physically wrong with them. “On and off the field, Newton is also redefining what it means to inspire kids, including kids with ADHD. Since his rookie year in 2011, whenever Newton scores a touchdown, he has given the football to a kid in the stands. By some estimates, he’s given out more than 50 footballs so far” Cam has received, thank you letters from kids with ADHD and hearing aides saying that every time the Panthers score a touchdown, they feel like they can do that too. Cam has done so much for kids who have nothing. Including going into a Dicks store filled with school children with no money and who would not be getting Christmas presents and he gave each kid 200$ to spend for their family!
