The Carolina Panthers will have not one but two MVPs on the field for Super Bowl 50.

Besides Cam Newton, the newly minted NFL MVP, they’ll turn to their No. 1 fan, Stephen Curry, to do the honors with their “Keep Pounding” drum. Before every home game, an honorary drummer swings at a six-foot drum with that phrase on it, getting the crowd going for the game. It’s a role the NBA’s reigning MVP successfully played before the home opener last September, so why not invite the Golden State Warriors star, what with the game in the Bay Area and all.

Curry confirmed the honor with a tweet.

The Panthers made the announcement about three hours before kickoff.

With Curry, a Charlotte native, on percussion in the Panthers’ opener, the team beat Houston, 24-17.

Curry had better be a good luck charm — he has guaranteed a Super Bowl victory for a while now and the Warriors did their part Saturday night against Oklahoma City.

“Keep Pounding” was started as a tribute to former Panthers linebacker and coach Sam Mills, who came up with the expression to fire up the team before a 2004 playoff game. Mills died in 2004 and his son, Sam II, is the team’s assistant defensive line coach.
