Found August 14, 2012 on A Glam Slam:
September issues reign supreme in the magazine world, as they rank among the top-selling issues of the year. Top celebrities, musicians and models often snag the coveted front spot but men’s fashion magazines often choose to give that honor to athletes. Last year GQ tapped New York Jets QB, Mark Sanchez, as its September cover boy. This time around it’s his teammate and fellow Jets QB, Tim Tebow, who fronts the magazine. Tebow shares the spotlight with Carolina Panthers QB, Cam Newton, on the publication’s NFL kick-off issue. Inside the magazine, fans will find features on both players. Tebow’s article is titled “Have You Accepted Tim Tebow as Your QB and Sunday Savior?” Writer and Jets fan, Devin Gordon, gives his account from the team’s locker room, as media members interview both Jets QBs at training camp. He also explains how he’s coming to terms with Tebow’s arrival in New York. For the full piece on Tim Tebow, read on here. Below is an excerpt: When it’s my [Gordon] turn, I simply ask him what I want to know myself: What would he say to Jets fans who aren’t sold on him, who maybe even consider themselves anti-Tebow? He smiles, locks onto me with his eyes, and speaks without hesitating. “I think if they’re a Jets fan, hopefully they’ll be rooting for me. I’ll do whatever I can to help this team win football games. I’ll give my heart and soul whenever I step on that field and even when I’m on the sidelines. And at the end of the day, that’s really all you can ask of someone.” The magazine also met up with Cam Newton at the Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI), in Bradenton, Florida, where he talks about leaving Florida, his first year in the NFL, and his famous father. Below is an excerpt: When he finally left Florida, he and Cecil endured the long drive to tiny Brenham, Texas, home to the two-year Blinn College. It was the farthest Newton had ever been from home, as humiliated as he’d ever been. “I sometimes cried myself to sleep at night. But I was thinking, ‘I’ve got to grow up. Either I’m doing it right now or I’m going home a screw-up.’ I was force-fed it, and I ate it. It was like divine intervention. It was like a whole new core of Cam, of myself, being created,” he says. For the full piece on Cam Newton, read on here. Cam’s corresponding photo shoot has a larger fashion focus and takes a look at “Newton’s Laws of Style.” The QB has proven he’s capable of scoring points on the style front. He was one of the best-dressed players at the 2011 NFL Draft and since joining the league, he has been recognized for his fashion choices. Below is a preview and you can check out more shots here.
