*Cam Newton, recently selected 1st overall by the Carolina Panthers in the 2011 NFL Draft, has signed with NFL agents Tony Paige and Chitta Mallik of Perennial Sports and Bus Cook of BC Sports for representation.

Newton, the Heisman Trophy winner, had one of the most successful college football seasons in recent history as he led Auburn to a BCS National Championship.

Perennial Sports and Entertainment, founded by Lamell McMorris, has quickly risen to the top of the sports agency world.

Additionally, by signing Derrick Favors who was drafted 3rd overall in the 2010 NBA Draft, Perennial is the only agency to have a top-10 pick in the most recent NBA and NFL drafts.

“This is a proud moment for our firm as we continue to build our agency with athletes that make an impact both on and off the field,” said McMorris. “Perennial’s ultimate success is based on developing long-lasting relationships with our clients and adding value to their lives.”
