Big Red fans have every right to be excited. We have every right to celebrate. We can certainly be forgiven for actually being hopeful for the future as Nebraska scores big-time landing much-heralded Scott Frost as the new head coach for its University football program.

He’s a proven champion with a list of accomplishments to back up all the boasting, a born and bred Nebraskan with the heart of a lion, an honest to goodness iron-man both on and off the field. (Yes, he actually started and played at both the quarterback and free-safety positions in a game while playing for Stanford when the starting quarterback was injured).

Scott Frost was raised in Wood River, coached by his parents who had formidable achievements of their own, and instilled in Scott the motivation to win, to strive for excellence, and to never quit as is superbly exemplified by his high school football career. In his sophomore, junior, and senior high school years he took his team to the state playoffs all three years, winning five games and advancing to the state semi-final playoffs twice. In four years as Wood River’s starting quarterback, 1989-1993, he racked up the sensational numbers of throwing for 6,859 yards and 67 touchdowns and adding another 4,278 yards running with an amazing 72 touchdowns.

Frost won the Lincoln Journal Star and Omaha World Herald Super State-All Nebraska honors as a junior and senior. He was a Parade All-American, Gatorade Circle of Champions Nebraska Player-of-the-Year, and a scholar athlete as well. He also went on to win the Gold Medal in the Shot Put at the 1993 Nebraska Track and Field Meet.

Frost played for Stanford for two seasons before returning to Nebraska in 1995. In two seasons leading the huskers he accounted for a 24-2 record as a starter, took Nebraska to the National Championship in 1997, helped win Tom Osborne’s third national title, and became only the 10th player in NCAA history to record both 1,000 yards passing, and 1,000 yards rushing in a single season. He then went on to play for several teams in the NFL for six seasons.

But of course performance on the field might not always translate into victory as a coach. This is where his efforts at the University of Central Florida come into play and prove his worth as a head coach. He took a school with a dismal record of 0-12 on the field in 2015, to an astonishing undeafeted12-0 record in 2017 and landed his team a spot in the upcoming Peach Bowl. Apparently Scott Frost’s accomplishments on the field do translate into premier football knowledge and an uncanny ability to turn around a football program. Considering this marvelous achievement, there’s all the more reason for Big Red fans to celebrate, have a little hope, and look forward to an exciting time ahead for husker football.

Welcome home favored son of Nebraska Scott Frost.

      Good article. I would like to see the Huskers get back to the team I watched while growing up. Those were tough, run it down your throat football teams who played great defense.
