Cam (in the Glom) before he was Cam

2010 Glom, page 39—there's Mario Fannin, Aubie, and some Other Dude.

It’s hard to believe that Cam Newton was ever in the background of any photo, ever, let alone one snapped at an Auburn Athletics function, or that he was ever thought of as just some other football player. But that’s how the 2010 Glom labeled the shot of “Mario Fannin and other Auburn athletes” serving food to donors at the Red Cross’ “Meal to Heal for Haiti” held a couple of weeks after a 7.0 earthquake rocked the island nation on January 12, and just weeks after Cam Newton enrolled at Auburn.

It’s a further reminder of just how brief the Blessed Individual’s shining moment on The Plains really was—the only yearbook he could have picked up as an Auburn student had just one (chance) picture of him and didn’t even list (or bless) his name.
