NFL Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton channels his inner model for the NFL Kick-Off issue of GQ magazine.
On top of flashing his million-dollar smile for the cover, the 23-year-old dons a Tommy Hilfiger sports jacket for the Peggy Sirota photo shoot.
Newton opened up to GQ about remaining humble, on fellow NFL player Tim Tebow and how his father influenced his life.
On his dad being his hero:
“He was like my superhero, if something was broke, he could fix it. If I was lost somewhere, he would find me. If I was crying, he could cure it. I knew that if I had my father with me, everything was going to be all right.”
On working with NFLer Tim Tebow:
“If I had said to Tim, ‘Man, can we spend some extra time to study the playbook?’ he would have done it. I didn’t take advantage of what was right in front of me. If I had, maybe his mentality would have hit me sooner. Basically, I was immature and unfocused. I would never, ever make that mistake again.”
On remaining grounded:
“If I come out and say, ‘I will be the greatest to ever play this game,’ that’s a no-no. If I come out and say, ‘I will not be stopped this year,’ that’s a no-no. People want to see humble.”
Enjoy the eye-candy ladies!
