Cam Newton has decided to go back to Auburn to work toward finishing his degree this offseason, and it appears he has had no problem acclimating himself to campus life once again. The War Eagle Reader has been closely following Newton’s return to Auburn since the NFL season ended. Earlier this week, we showed you a video of Cam cheering on the Tigers basketball team with the rest of the student section. Apparently that isn’t the only campus activity he is taking part in. The photo you see above shows Newton playing intramural basketball with some other members of the student body. According to The War Eagle Reader, the team that was supposed to be playing against Newton’s didn’t show so the Panthers quarterback took part in some pick-up games instead. While Carolina fans hold their collective breath in hopes that Newton doesn’t suffer any type of significant injury while playing intramural basketball, I’m willing to give credit where credit is due. Between stories about holding up team buses and acting like a jerk at the Pro Bowl, Newton could use a little image repair as he repares for his third NFL season. Refusing preferential treatment and just hanging out like a regular student at Auburn is a good way for him to start changing the public’s perception.
