INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (Tribune News Service) — D.J. Frost, a senior wide receiver at Blue Springs South, has committed to attend the United States Air Force Academy.

Frost will take his considerable skills to Air Force, the first school to offer him a Division I scholarship.


"D.J. is the total package," Coach Jon Oyler said after Frost's five-reception, 125-yard game against Olathe North. "He's a great player and an even greater kid."

Frost, who is a member of the National Honor Society, is not sure what he will tackle academically at the Air Force Academy but flying, and going into the medical field, are two major interests.

"I've thought about being a pilot – that has always intrigued me," Frost said, "and so has becoming an orthopedic surgeon. After I suffered that fracture in my foot last year, I know what a great doctor can mean to a patient and I would love to take a look at that profession, and I can do it at the Academy."
