Cam Newton returns to Auburn

By Lance Davis

Cam Newton is back on campus, and it’s not to play football.

Newton is enrolled at classes at Auburn, AU officials confirmed to WSFA 12 News’ Sally Pitts. He is working toward getting his sociology degree.

Photos of Newton in class made the rounds on social media. Head coach Gus Malzahn, who was Newton’s offensive coordinator in 2010, tweeted, “Happy to see my man Cam back at AU this semester working toward his degree. #wareagle”

Newton attended Florida and Blinn Community College in Texas before enrolling at Auburn. During his one-year stay at Auburn, Newton led the team to its second national championship in school history and won the Heisman Trophy after a record-setting season.

Newton was drafted first overall by the Carolina Panthers in 2011, the NFL team with which he still plays. He was named Offensive Rookie of the Year and was selected to play in the 2012 Pro Bowl.
