Friday Frosted Flakes: Scott Frost Hikes the Grand Canyon Because Of Course He Did

The aura that is the “Scott Frost” persona is so blinding at this time that you wouldn’t think he could do much more before his first game of the season. Then he goes ahead and one-ups himself.

How does he do that? A 13 hour hike through the Grand Canyon. The hike covered 10 miles down to the Colorado River and 10 miles back up with an elevation gain of over 5,000 feet and ESPN’s Marty Smith just happen to hike it with him.

It was a really interesting story done by Marty Smith, but a couple questions and answers stuck out to me.

Marty Smith: “Why was it important for you to (hike the Grand Canyon)?”

Coach Frost: “Well anytime you’re a leader, you have to let your people see that you’re willing to do some of the things they’re doing, and work as hard as they’re working. A leaders should probably not ask his team to do something he’s not willing to do.”

That answer is among many by Frost which shows why his players love to play for him. While you are going through summer conditioning, he isn’t sitting at his desk. He’s pushing himself to be uncomfortable as well. What he is asking of you, he his doing himself.


Marty Smith: “Why are these types of experiences important to you as a football coach?”

Coach Frost: “Man we get so busy with football and I think it is really easy in the world today, especially in our job to focus on what is right in front of you, you tend to forget how many great things are out there and being here in the Grand Canyon with some good friends and some people I respect and some people I enjoy being around makes for a special adventure.”

Coach Frost dolling out life advice. There are so many great things out there right where you are. You don’t always have to drive 16 hours to the Grand Canyon to find them. It could be anywhere.

Nebraska offensive coordinator Troy Walters didn’t get any questions about fullbacks in York.

OK, so no fullback. But can the Huskers get nasty in the trenches again?
