Senior quarterback Christian Ponder, completely recovered from a shoulder injury that cut short his 2009 campaign, is garnering much attention nationally. One of the nation's leaders in virtually every statistical category prior to his injury, Ponder's exploits on the field and in the classroom are well detailed on the university-backed website www.cp7forheisman.com. Since the July 10 site launch through Friday, July 23 (at 1 p.m.), the site has had 44,705 visits (viewers) from 79 different countries. Even more impressive, it has drawn 32,716 unique viewers, who have totaled 59,090 page views. The top 10 countries for visits are: United States, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Cayman Islands, Spain, Japan, France, Iraq and South Korea.
Site visitors can access all of Ponder's on-field exploits, including year-by-year and career statistics, a highlight video and links to a multitude of feature stories and interviews. They can also view a variety of other videos, including one from the Florida State business school, where Ponder has already earned his B.S. in Finance and completed his MBA this past spring. (He is currently working toward a second postgraduate degree in Sport Management).
The site is updated daily and will continue to provide up-to-the-minute information on the redshirt senior, who recently earned the top rating among all senior quarterbacks in the country by the NFL scouting service.
Fans can also build their own Ponder screen saver, scan his extensive photo gallery and keep up with him through Twitter and Facebook.
The collaborative project was put together and is maintained by Seminole ISP Sports and Florida State's digital media and sports information departments, with Old Hat providing the design.
