Oh, no. He was a good man and a great neighbor. The pride of Malcolm. I will miss seeing him and the dogs go by.

 

Our hearts go out to Scott, Carol and the rest of the Frost family.

 

There is never, ever a time when you're ready to lose a parent.

From the Nebraska Sports Hall of Fame:

 

"When Tom Osborne scouted an eight man player at Malcolm and saw him score six touchdowns in six carries, he knew Larry Frost was special.  Frost set national records scoring 121 touchdowns and 765 points in his high school career, including nine touchdowns in a game.  He was the first eight-man player to earn Player of the game honors in the Shrine Bowl.  A versatile athlete earning 12 athletic letters at Malcolm, he is believed to be the school’s all-time leading scorer in basketball.  He also won three silver medals in the 100-yard dash and placed in the 220 and 440 at the State Track Meet.  At Nebraska, he was a two-year starter at wingback before becoming a successful high school coach."

 

With his future wife Carol, back in his days playing under Devaney:

In as much as Scott has done for his players, wanting to be able to play, amid Scott's Fathers passing, imagine how hard this team is going to be playing this fall.  I would love to see the team playing with a sticker of Larry Frost's Husker number on their helmet.

Thoughts and Prayers for the Frost Family.

Only 73 years old too.  Too soon.  :(  That quote about him picking playing for Nebraska vs being an All American at a smaller school is gold.
