Auburn quarterback, Cameron Newton, won the Heisman trophy Saturday night despite on-going investigations regarding his father and a scandal that accused the Newton family of looking for money from Mississippi State during his recruiting process.
"Cam's eligibility has at no point been in jeopardy," said a source close to the situation, according to the Huffington Post.
Cam's father, Cecil Newton, reportedly asked for $180,000 from Mississippi State while he was searching for a transfer school before this season. He was not at last night's ceremony intentionally because he didn't want to steal the spotlight, according to Yahoo! Sports.
