When the football season ends, a five month vacation starts for its players. Hanging out with family, luxurious vacations, or relaxing at home is usually on the agenda, but for a small (and I do mean small) group returning back to school is the playbook. For the 2012 NFL Rookie of the Year, and starting QB for the Carolina Panthers, Cam Newton will be seen walking the halls and studying in the library of Auburn University. Instead or traveling Newton has enrolled in the spring semester at his former school. It’s reported that Newton is majoring in sociology but not really sure how many additional credit hours he needs before graduation.
"He wants to focus on school and be a normal college student," said Kirk Sampson, associate athletics director for communication.
Newton isn’t the first athlete to return to get his degree, this is a trend among many athletes, especially the ones who say that they “promised their mother” they would finish. Most recently former NBA great and TNT Analysis graduated Barry University with a doctorate in education and the NFLPA has a partnership with the Wharton School of Business. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn tweeted about Newton's return Tuesday morning.
"Happy to see my man Cam back at AU this semester working toward his degree. #wareagle," Malzahn tweeted.
