That’s Cam Newton, the #1 overall pick in last Thursday’s NFL draft, playing in a charity kickball game in Charlotte on Saturday with an official WAKA kickball.

According to the Charlotte Observer, it was Carolina Panther “teammate Jordan Gross’ charity kickball tournament which benefits cystic fibrosis.” The official website for Kick CF with Jordan Gross says that, going into Saturday, Gross’ annual event had raised over $200,000 the past three years.

It’s nice to see money being raised for a good cause and kickball a part of it.

Thanks to @scottnumbers for letting me know about that photo.
