When Cam Newton crossed the goal line for his third rushing touchdown Sunday, the Carolina Panthers rookie quarterback handed the football to 16-year-old fan Katie Brown.
It didn't take long, however, for the Panthers to come asking for the ball back. It turns out it was Newton’s 13th rushing touchdown of the season, setting an NFL record for a quarterback, breaking Steve Grogan's 35-year-old mark.
Panthers assistant equipment manager Don Toner drew the task of trying to retrieve the ball. Luckily for him, an excited Brown was more than understanding and open to trading the ball.
Brown, wearing a shirt that said “Mrs. Newton” on the back, received a different ball, four Panthers hats and is awaiting something else in the mail the team said it would send her.
Newton's record ball is likely headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
