Hey kids: Newton-ing and Tebow-ing will get you in trouble.
A high school quarterback from Charlotte, N.C., was ejected from a state playoff game last Friday after he imitated Cam Newton's touchdown celebration by pretending to rip open his jersey, Superman-like, after a scoring run.
Game officials determined that Jalan McClendon's act was unsportsmanlike and sent him to the sideline.
But Newton apparently thought that the punishment was a bit harsh, the Associated Press reported.
"Taunting is taunting, but at the end of the day, you still have to have fun playing the game," Newton said. "I don't think my [celebration] is anything derogatory of any sort."
A similar fate befell two high school students from Long Island, N.Y., last December when they imitated Tim Tebow's signature pose in a campus hallway.
