Cameron Newton thanked his mother, then his father. And then he paused to compose himself.

Cecil Newton was back in Georgia, though his son put him squarely in the room where the Auburn quarterback accepted college football's biggest award Saturday night -- the Heisman Trophy.

"Thank you for all you did for me," he told his parents, adding. "To my father, I love you so much."
