Jon Pontius Biography from the Hall of Fame Sports Induction Ceremony, June 30, 2012.
 
Jon Pontius will always be remembered as a star Otter athlete and track and field standout in the early 1990's.  Jon earned his first letter in eighth grade as a high jumper.  As a sophomore, he placed third in the state in the triple jump.  In his junior year he was second in the high jump and triple jump, and as a senior he was the state champion in the high jump, long jump and triple jump.  His high jump mark of 7-feet-one-half-inch remains one of the best all-time in the state of Minnesota.
 
Pontius also enjoyed a stellar football career at FFHS as a tight end and a defensive end.
 
After high school Pontius broke the records in the high jump, decathlon and pentathlon at West Point.  He became an NCAA Division I All-American in the decathlon in 1997.  Pontius was a two-event All-Armed Forces selection in track and field in 1998 and 2000 and was a five-event champion in the International Police and Fire Games in 2004.
