A public hearing is scheduled tonight in Fulton County, Ga., about the possibility of naming a stretch of road after Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
Some longtime residents of Scarborough Road complained about the possibility at the first meeting, according to Johnny Edwards of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Auburn is a graduate of nearby Westlake High School.
Per the report, some complained the 23-year-old Newton is too young to have a road named after him. Others don’t want to endure the hassle of changing personal records if the road is re-named. One woman complained about the trouble that has been linked to Newton at different schools.
Sounds like Newton could face long odds to have a stretch of road named after him. Stay tuned.
