When thinking of Wagoner, Okla., most focus immediately on senior defensive back Kevin Peterson, who has offers from Iowa State, Arizona and Tulsa and should see interest in him pick up after a tremendous season.

But if you’re looking for the future of Wagoner football, it starts with junior linebacker T.J. Ponds. At 6-foot and 210 pounds, Ponds is cementing himself as one of the top in-state defensive prospects for 2013.

Ponds, Peterson and the rest of the Wagoner team won the Oklahoma 4A state championship with a 23-0 win against Clinton, Okla., last week. It is Wagoner’s first championship.
