When the dust has finally settled around Super Bowl 50 on Sunday night, either Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning or Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will be hailed as a hero

They’ll be cemented in the Super Bowl pantheon alongside legends like Joe Montana, Emmitt Smith and Charles Haley. But let’s go back even further — to a time when those gridiron stars of yore were just awkward teens with funny-looking high school yearbook photos

On top of that, this young pro-athlete is projected to sweep up his first MVP title at the NFL Honors Awards Show airing Saturday, February 6th at 9:00 pm on CBS.

Before you start channeling your anger at me and start giving me lip service of how arrogant, closed-minded, showboat-y and selfish Cam is to you, allow me, someone who works in the marketing and branding field, to share some reasoning behind why Newton is overtaking your Twitter timelines and Facebook News Feeds.

It’s not quite Donald Trump with a man bun, but Tim Tebow with a ponytail is tough to un-see all the same.

Unlike the Photoshop mischief that gave Trump a fresh ‘do, however, Tebow’s new look is the real deal. Well, at least the photo is real
