It’s a bird…It’s a plane…It’s CAM NEWTON! The Carolina Panthers quarterback is featured on not one but two covers of EBONY for April and May. One shows off the superstar’s 6’5″ 245 lb. frame while the other includes him with his supportive and devout Christian mother, Jackie Newton. Inside, Newton talks candidly to EBONY about his monster success, fame, failures, fatherhood and the challenges of being the “realest” on and off the field.
“I’m an African-American quarterback that may scare a lot of people because they haven’t seen nothing that they can compare that to,” he told reporters.
Newton has been at the center of a lot of controversy before and after Super Bowl 50 and now it’s his time to set the record straight.
