ESPN’s Sam Steele Marries QB Ponder
Christian Ponder of the Minnesota Vikings is more of a pocket quarterback than a scrambler. But the Florida State product is still capable of moving pretty fast.
On Monday afternoon, the second-year signal-caller, 24, married ESPN college football reporter Samantha Steele in a Wisconsin courtroom 30 minute from Minneapolis. To call it a whirlwind courtship would be putting it lightly.
They met on the set of “College GameDay” earlier this season and started dating shortly thereafter. Ponder revealed that they were dating in October, they announced their engagement on Dec. 5 and tied the knot less than two weeks after that.
If Ponder can also lead the 8–6 Vikings into the playoffs, it’ll all make for a very happy holiday season.
