Heisman Trophy 2010: Cam Newton Not Worthy of All-American Status?
The Heisman Trophy 2010 proceedings are fast approaching, and the rumor around town is that Auburn quarterback Cam Newton has already cleared some room in his trophy case.
Yes, Newton is soon going to be able to introduce himself as "Cam Newton, Heisman Trophy winner." But according to Yahoo! Sports, he won't be able to call himself an FWAA All-American.
Yes, Newton has been left off the Football Association of America’s All-America team, as they instead chose Boise State's Kellen Moore, another Heisman contender.
Given the monster stats and immense hype generated by Newton during the 2010 season, it's pretty hard to view this as anything other than a savage revenge burn for the pay-for-play allegations that followed him around in the latter half of the season.
Given that sports journalists are responsible for a pretty significant percentage of the votes that go into selecting a Heisman winner, should Newton be concerned?
I for one am not about to make a prediction that this is going to cost Newton the award. Just throwing it out there, as they say.
If you think missing out on the FWAA All-American Team hurts Newton's draft stock, you might dig Bleacher Report's list of 20 Players Whose Stock Has Fallen Furthest This Season.
