LINCOLN — It’s been an emotional couple weeks for Scott Frost and his family.

On Sept. 16, Frost found out the Huskers would be playing a season in 2020, something he had been fighting for since the beginning of August. Just hours later, Frost found out his father and Nebraska sports icon Larry Frost had passed away.

“It should have been the happiest of days, but it wasn’t,” Frost said on Friday during a Zoom press conference.

Frost said his faith, his family and the Husker community helped him get through the loss. And now, Frost has learned to appreciate the man Larry taught him to be.

“I’m just glad that I was blessed enough to have that kind of father,” Frost said. “A lot of people in this country grow up without that type of father in the home, without two parents in the home. I think it’s one of the biggest issues affecting America right now.”

Frost said he feels he’s most at peace when he’s on the football field with his team.
