Old teammates gather for a 'Frosty' viewing party
WOOD RIVER, Neb. —
Before Scott Frost became a Power Five football coach, he was just your typical central Nebraska boy growing up right here in Wood River. It's where the legacy all began as Frost led the Eagles to three-straight playoff appearances. He also captured eight class C1 state records along the way, several of which still stand to this day 25 years later.
Before he was winning national titles at Nebraska, Frost also had a lot of great teammates from his days at Wood River as well. NTV News spoke with them Sunday on the Codner family farm, where they had a big viewing party as Scott Frost took the podium, reflecting back on some great memories how frost became the man he is today.
Building football programs is something Scott Frost has done since his days as a Wood River Eagle. From leading the team to its first playoff appearance in six years, to most recently bringing Central Florida back from an 0–12 record in 2015 to a perfect record this year topping it off with a conference title.
His timing couldn't be better, since the Huskers just finished with their worst record in over 50 years, and rank last in four different Big Ten categories.
