Congratulations Cam Newton – MVP… Ron Rivera Coach of the Year

Just when I thought my day was coming to an end an alert delivers some amazing news. With blogs pointing at Cam in less than favorable ways, I had to send some love his way in an article “Cam Newton…I Wonder?”  The article raised a larger question. It wondered why such an athlete with Cam’s credentials, was being portrayed in ways that narrowed his persona. Well Cam, there is no wondering. I never wondered. Welcome to the “bestest” club! Your critics will become some  of your most beloved supporters. You are indeed a master of the game. Keep passing and setting your bar higher for kids who are in search of their own dreams. You are a reflection of what they can become. Keep your aspirations in the stratosphere and for sure you’ll live there for a very long time.

Thanks for reminding everyone about how you do what you do and how you got to be MVP and play in the most sort after game on the planet!  “I’m very proud,” Newton said. “We didn’t get in this position by happenstance. It took years of hard work and dedication.” Now it’s countdown to Superbowl 50- get past them- you can do it- score big!

Coach Rivera- I’m sure you are proud of Cam and the full roster of your Panther family. Tomorrow will once again be your witness. Hard work and sacrifice with enormous talent, produces a better than ever imagined harvest. On behalf of northeastern, NC – congratulations and just know the SUPER 50 PARTY is on tap at my momma’s house at 4:00 pm! C’mon … bring “Vince” on home!
