She became a hot search term and new media darling after working that exciting Friday night barnburner between Baylor and TCU to open the 2012 football season.

That’s right- she works on Friday nights, while you’re out getting smashed.

She once worked through a concussion, suffered while showcasing her great ability to throw a football.

Now that she’s Samantha Ponder and not Samantha Steele, her name is a lot less James Bond girlish/porno sounding.

And as you can see from the pics below, Samantha Ponder got her sweet gig due to her journalistic chops and hard core work ethic. I’m sure it has nothing to do with her “photogenic” traits. Look Samantha Ponder and Erin Andrews. I’m surprised this pic didn’t break the internet.
