Sam Ponder is making waves as a college football reporter for ESPN. She has a beautiful baby daughter with husband and Minnesota Vikings Quarterback, Christian Ponder. Baby Scout can be seen traveling with mom while she reports from the sidelines of college gamedays across the country.
Ponder is a woman that is making it happen by managing a full-time career in the public eye, being a wife, and a mother. You can see this documented via her Instagram account where she’s in Fargo, North Dakota one day and then the next is in Tallahassee, Florida.
All the while, she’s working and posting the most adorable pictures of her family.
Scout is now a road warrior along with mom. You can’t help but smile at the adorable outfits that she is sporting and her overall cuteness. I believe at the tender age of only a few months old that she is a GuysGirl in training.
The start to the NFL season has been rough. We hear in the news most often about the disrespect of women within the industry, specifically for wives, reporters, and more.
But on the other side, it’s great to see a strong woman taking a stance on gender equality in all of football, whether it is college or professional.
Sam recently spoke out from the sidelines at Doak Campbell Stadium to express her opinion on the Jameis Winston incident. She stated, “We ask that you don’t lie, you don’t cheat, you don’t steal, and you don’t disrespect women.”
We need more women role models like Sam Ponder who aren’t afraid to voice their opinions in the sports industry.
Here’s hoping she continues to display all the beautiful Instragram pictures with my only wish to see Baby Scout sporting some Canes gear next.
