"Athletes like James Frost are among the success stories produced in high school athletics today," NHSCA Executive Directors Bob Ferraro said.

Frost, who will continue his golf career next year at Mississippi State University, won three Maine Class C state individual titles, shooting 73 last fall to win his third title, and helping his team to three state team crowns. He was coached at Calais High by the NHSCA's National High School Boys Coach of the Year, Mike Ellis.

He scored 217 and finished 11th in the 2000 championships as a sophomore, following that performance with a 226 total and 24th place in 2001 as a junior. Frost is one of just six male golfers to earn All-America honors more than once.
