The father of Auburn quarterback Cam Newton says he will not
attend the Heisman Trophy award ceremony because his presence might "rob Cam and the event of a sacred moment."

The father of Auburn quarterback Cam Newton says he will not
attend the Heisman Trophy award ceremony because his presence might "rob Cam and the event of a sacred moment."

Cecil Newton released the statement Thursday through George
Lawson, the Atlanta-based Newton family attorney.

Cam Newton is the favorite to receive the Heisman Trophy
Saturday in New York. His father says he has made an "exhausting
attempt to be a good husband, father and generally a good person of
integrity."

Cecil Newton, who was involved in a failed pay-for-play scheme
during his son's recruitment, says "the past 60 days have caused
all that my family worked to accomplish to come into question."

Cam Newton was in Florida for ESPN's College Football Awards
Show.
