Don’t Play With It! Cam Newton Goes Viral After Scuffle At Youth Football Event In Atlanta

In a viral video, former NFL MVP Cam Newton was apparently caught up in a scuffle during a youth football tournament in Atlanta.

Former NFL Most Valuable Player Cam Newton found himself the subject of a viral video last week after he was apparently caught up in a scuffle during a 7-on-7 youth football tournament in Atlanta.

The video shows Newton, wearing one of his signature quirky hats, being pushed by three men near a set of steps. The altercation quickly escalated, involving pushing and grabbing, and moved toward a fence line.

The incident, lasting less than 30 seconds, came to an end when a police officer and event security intervened at the WeBall Sports x DynastyU 7v7 tournament at B.E.S.T. Academy, according to the Associated Press.

Despite the commotion, Newton, the top overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Auburn University, did not appear to throw any punches in the video. He seemed to be in a defensive position against three other men. While a punch was thrown in Newton’s direction, it remains unclear whether it landed.

A native of Atlanta, Newton runs the C1N organization, established in 2021, which focuses on nurturing the skills of young athletes in football.

The organization provides opportunities for them to compete at the highest level through events like 7-on-7 tournaments. According to Newton’s website, C1N’s mission is to create an environment that promotes growth and development on and off the field, assisting young athletes in achieving their goals in football and life.

Former teammates and NFL colleagues expressed their thoughts on X (previously Twitter), highlighting the unstoppable nature of the 6’5″ quarterback on the field—and why any rational person would want to take that on.

Even former linebacker Daren Bates of the Carolina Panthers chimed in, joking that Newton, a podcaster, had to “get in the studio immediately.”
