Amanda Frost: Athlete of the Week

An ACL tear in each leg - several months of rehabilitation - and the determination and drive to get back and succeed have all the makings for this week's athlete of the week Amanda Frost.

Denver girls coach Steve Moon said:



"she spent a lot of time rehabbing in the last 2 years. She worked with john waltz, physical therapist and he told me he has never had a kid work as hard as she has to get back on the basketball court.

"do you ever worry that you might do something again out there?"

Amanda Frost said: "no, you can't play scared. I've always told myself this is a game, put your heart on the floIr and every time i step out on the floor i hope to do my best."

The Cyclones earned a trip to the state tournament a year ago with an opening round loss but return four seniors and with Frost leading the way they hope to hang another pennant before seasons end.

"she is a force inside, she gets doubled teamed, triple teamed each night and still is able to come through and contribute in a lot of different ways for us."

"the goal is obviously to make it to the state tournament again. It's really important to us after you get to see it be there we want to make it further."

The senior center has helped the Cyclones off to a 5-0 start, ranked 4th in the state and is averaging just less than 14 points and 9 boards per contest.


"while the cyclones missed three days of practice last week due to the weather throwing them off their game a bit their ultimate goal remains the same. Get back to state and win a title."

That's always our goal to get back to the state tournament. You take a look at our banners on the wall. That's always a goal of ours and we talk about that yet we have never repeated. We've gone every other year a few years back but we've never gone back to back and that's our goal this year to see if we can accomplish a dream come true, go back and hopefully win a state championship.
