SPARTANBURG, S.C.-- Cam Newton is everywhere.

If he's not flying through your television set on "Cam's Night Out" hawking Under Armour gear or sucking down Gatorade and "Winning the Fifth Quarter," chances are you've seen the 23-year-old quarterback featured prominently by the NFL in advertisements for its preseason games.

He's been on the intro to ESPN SportsCenter.

And, if not for Calvin Johnson, he'd be on the cover of Madden NFL 13, too.

In 15 months Newton has developed into a national celebrity unlike the Panthers have seen since coming into the league in 1995.

Charismatic, built like a Greek god and incredibly talented, Newton has taken the country by storm since being drafted No. 1 overall last year and become, as teammate Jon Beason put it, "a mega-superstar."
