Samantha and Christian Ponder had their first child recently, as announced by Larry Fitzgerald’s dad, because of course, on July 20th. According to Ben Goessling, the child is named after one of Ponder’s former coaches. No, not Leslie (Frazier), but Florida State legend Bobby Bowden, who coached Ponder in college.
Christian Ponder said his little girl’s name is Bowden Sainte-Claire. Yes, she’s named after Bobby.

This is why I am rooting for Dana Holgorsen to turn it around and become a coaching legend, and put a QB in the NFL. So we can get another Baby Holgo. I’m not sure how I feel about this becoming a trend, though. A whole generation of dour young women named Saban would be a bridge too far.
