If Caylin Newton keeps doing ridiculous stuff on the football field, I’m going to keep writing about it.
The younger brother of 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton has been putting up video game numbers this season as the senior quarterback for Grady High School (Atlanta). We told you about the time he gained 207 rushing yards in a win over one of Georgia’s top-ranked teams. We told you about the time he threw for 364 yards and five touchdowns in a single half. Now, check out this ridiculous move he busted out in his most recent game:
It reminds me of the old NCAA Football series where you could hit the “fake pitch” button.
The play was just a small part of Newton’s overall dominance. In a 54-0 win over Decatur, Newton racked up 392 passing yards, 6 passing touchdowns, 44 rushing yards and 1 rushing touchdown. Not a bad day at the office. On the season, he’s now up to 17 passing touchdowns to go along with just one interception.
Caylin is currently rated a three-star recruit by 247Sports.com, but he has yet to receive an offer from any Division I-A teams. That might have something to do with his size. He’s listed at 5-foot-11, 185 pounds by 247Sports. For comparison, Cam was 6-foot-5, 235 pounds during his senior year of high school.
Though Caylin and Cam are super tight, the younger Newton is determined to make his own name. “I work out at my high school. A lot of guys like to push me by saying, ‘Come on, Cam’s brother.’ That really irritates me, because I have a name. I can’t stand when people call me ‘Little Cam’ or compare me to my brother, but that’s my motivation,” Caylin told STACK. “Being my own person, accomplishing things for me—not because of my last name, but because of my first name. I have big dreams.”
