Ponder to start for the Seminoles

Christian Ponder has been named the starting quarterback for the first game of the season against Western Carolina. Ponder beat out 3-year starter Drew Weatherford, and fellow redshirt sophomore D'Vontrey Richardson. This will be Ponder's first career start ever.

Christian Ponder has had a couple ups and downs the last couple of weeks. He graduated from Florida State in Business Administration in two and a half years. But he suffered a sore shoulder that really limited him throughout this heated QB competition. Ponder showed a lot of mental and physical toughness to battle through that. Ponder has been performing at a high level for the last couple of months after being named the 2008 Offensive MVP of the team during the spring. Ponder has a new number this year for a new year for him and the Florida State Seminoles.
