Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson wished his friend and Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton good luck on social-media before Sunday's Super Bowl between the Panthers and the Broncos.

Newton has been a mentor for Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson since Watson attended one of Newton's football camps a few years ago, and the two have kept in touch.
