Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton and coach Gus Malzahn led Auburn to the school's second national championship in 2010.

The two are expected to join forces again next week in Birmingham.

Newton, the 2015 NFL MVP and starting quarterback for the Carolina Panthers, is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the 11th annual American Values Luncheon, the largest fundraising event of the year for the Greater Alabama Council, Boy Scouts of Alabama. The event is sccheduled for Friday, March 16, at the BJCC.

Malzahn, entering his sixth season as Auburn's head coach, is expected to join Newton on-stage during the event and take questions from Boy Scouts, according to a news release about the event.

Auburn is currently conducting spring practice, and Auburn's A-Day is set for April 7 and will be televised by the SEC Newtork.

"Each year, thanks to our great guest speakers, we are able to raise critical funds which provide resources for the programs that make Scouting so valuable to our communities. I know everyone, but especially our Auburn supporters, will look forward to hearing Cam's message," Bill Morton, co-chair of the American Values Luncheon, said in the news release.

Last year, NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal served as the event's keynote speaker. Others who have spoken include Bo Jackson, Gene Stallings and Nick Saban.

Why do we keep underestimating Auburn in many sports?
