Marcel Reed has had a few days an elementary school kid could only dream about.
All-Pro cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie stopped by Oak Hill, his school in Nashville, to have lunch with him Friday. Then Saturday, NFL MVP Cam Newton and Rodgers-Cromartie watched Marcel’s youth basketball game.
Marcel is the youngest of Tennessee State football coach Rod Reed’s four children.
Rodgers-Cromartie, now with the New York Giants, is back on the Tennessee State campus using the weight room for offseason workouts. Rodgers-Cromartie and Newton became friends when Rodgers-Cromartie played at TSU (2005-08) with Newton’s brother Cecil, who was an offensive lineman.
Friday, Newton was spotted partying in Nashville, dancing and smoking cigars in videos that made the rounds on social media. Newton apparently attended the All Black Affair birthday celebration for Robert “Black Rob” Higgins, a local event promoter and night club owner.
Saturday night, Newton attended the Tennessee State basketball game.
