Frost surpasses 1,500 career basketball points
Jaixen Frost was recognized last week before the basketball game against Red Oak for an achievement not many in Mount Ayr history can say they have reached.
In his basketball career, Frost surpassed 1,500 total points.
The announcement made it known that it is believed it is the highest mark in Raider basketball history and that it was achieved in the win against Nodaway Valley just the week prior, but Frost wanted to win the conference title before any sort of announcement was made.
Looking at the career totals for Frost show he is well over the 1,500 mark and is actually sitting at 1,751 points with, as of this article, at least one more game to go so that number will only increase.
Frost credited his teammates throughout the last four years for his success.
“My freshman year, I was just glad to play with my cousin [Dawson Frost] and all the role models that I had and it was a great time to play with them and took what each of them gave me,” said Frost. “I try to play the game the way I do and be as humble as I can and be a great teammate.”
Frost’s numbers show that he isn’t stingy with the ball either, producing 306 assists throughout his career and averaging 3.4 per game over the last four years after playing in 90 games and starting 66.
Frost has achived a 55.3 percent shooting percentage and is good on 46.1 percent of all three-pointers and has hit 84 percent of his freethrows.
His coach throughout the last four years, Bret Ruggles, always talks about his work ethic and how he strives to be the best.
“Two things about Jaixen that stands out is you knew he was going to post big numbers when he was a freshman, you could just see the ball went in a little easier than others and his attention to detail and work ethic and as much as he shoots the ball a lot he is very selfless,” said Ruggles. “He didn’t want to be recognized and wanted to get the conference championship first, so once that was secured we thought Red Oak was a good time to recognize him.”
Frost will add to those career totals in the upcoming post-season, making those records slightly harder to reach.
After high school, Frost is attending the University of Iowa on a baseball scholarship, where he will look to improve the Hawkeyes baseball team.
