"He's 6-6, 303 pounds and clocks about 5.45," Stratford head coach Eliot Allen
said about his offensive tackle and A&M verbal Robbie Frost
. "He had some back problems when he was a freshman. As a sophomore, he broke his leg. So, it wasn't until between his sophomore year (off-season) and junior year that he was able to really work. I mean all of the sudden he just develops."
Kid has plenty of upside as he's just now scratching the surface.
Last year, Frost manned the starting right tackle job. And, along with tight end Ben Snellenberger (a D-I prospect in his own right), formed a lethal blocking tandem on that side of the ball.
"We run a lot of zone blocking," Eliot said. "We're typically a zone blocking team. And we're definitely able to run the zone stretch with Robbie and Ben being so athletic."
Asked when A&M came on strong and really began showing interest in his lineman, Eliot said, "About a few weeks before they offered, they ordered some tape. And they eventually offered after that. With his mom and dad graduating from Texas A&M, it didn't take him long to accept it."
Getting noticed isn't necessarily easy or even what you'd imagine sometimes. Recent Texas A&M commitment, Robbie Frost, definitely had to overcome a little adversity in his freshman and sophomore seasons on his way to being recognized. Hard work and perseverance paid off as Dennis Franchione and Co. discovered the Houston Stratford OT. Of course, standing 6-6 and weighing 303 pounds never hurts...
