Six-year-old Colin Toler could barely contain his excitement when he saw Carolina Panthers superstar quarterback Cam Newton rush towards him to give away the touchdown football. But what made the moment even more special is why Colin was at the game in the first place.
It was November 8, 2015, with the Carolina Panthers playing the Green Bay Packers on home turf. The Panthers were down 7-3 in the second quarter until Cam Newton scored a touchdown.
Regarded by some as the best quarterback in the NFL, Newton is not just a great football player. He also seems to be one of the good guys. He has set up his own children’s foundation, which runs education, sports, and charity programs for kids throughout the U.S.
