Which is why it should come as little surprise that as he was driving by Community School of Davidson in Davidson, N.C. on Friday and saw a kid wearing his jersey he stopped, hopped the fence and joined them for a little football and fun.
Mimi Siadak, a seventh-grade teacher, said Newton asked the teachers for permission and then hopped the fence to toss a football.
“The students just herded all around him. I still can’t believe he did that,” Siadak said.
Newton also posed for a “dabbing” photo with the awestruck students and got the group to heckle one of their teachers wearing a Steelers lanyard.
“I saw one girl crying and hyperventilating and when I asked, ‘Honey what’s wrong?’ she said, ‘That was just the best moment of my life,’” Siadak said.
