Ryan Samuels

 

“I loved playing football for ponax because of the process.  You knew exactly what you needed to do on and off the field to succeed year after year. You had to earn everything, nothing was given. It was also rare to see high school players holding each other accountable for weights, meetings, practices ect. You never wanted to let your teammates down. I still use the lessons I learned today. “

 

 

Isaiah Jones

“Ponax football is like no other program. I loved playing because not only did It teach me skills on the field but also things I could use off the field in my everyday life. With the coaches there to push you every day sometimes it feels like you met your breaking point, but then you have your brothers to lean on and pull through, that’s what I love about the program. My favorite moment about ponax football is surprisingly camp. Camp is what really molded the team together going into the season and just being out in the mountains was a good way to get away from everything.”

 

Trey Watkins

“I loved playing at ponax because of the brotherhood. I knew everyone on the team had my back on and off the field. I also loved playing there because it was fun. The coaches and everyone involved with the team made playing football at ponax fun. My favorite moment is when I stiffed arm Devyn Ford into the dirt my junior year.”

 

Trajan Anderson

“The biggest reason i loved playing football at ponax is because we really became one big family which i know is a cliche but it’s true. Even guys who didn’t play much and guys who played every snap became basically best friends. And playin out there next to your brothers is the best feeling you can get and knowing that the coaches trust you and always got your back that’s what i loved about it.  

I don’t have a specific best moment because every single snap and practice were the best moments of my life lol. Every play and every touchdown every tackle those were all the best moments even if i wasn’t the one making the play.”
