Watch Cam Newton try his hand at Aussie Rules football

Wednesday September 9th, 2015

Cam Newton was looking for new ways to train this off-season, so Gatorade sent the Panthers quarterback to Australia to learn a different kind of football.


• Vince Wilfork took on Carli Lloyd in a field goal kicking contest

Newton admits upon arrival that he does not know much about Australian Rules football but shows he is willing to learn as he joins Richmond Football Club for some training, although he struggles mightily in the early going.

He eventually begins to show the world-class athleticism that helped him get to the NFL after a few sessions with the team and talks about the lessons he hopes to take back to his American football training.

The video is part of a series from Gatorade that has also featured the Packers’ Eddie Lacy working out with competitive lumberjacks.
