When Lane's parents, Clyde and
Elsie Frost wanted to add something to
this site, I used to just type the new information in on the page it
So I have created this page for the Frosts to
"write" to you directly.
| Lane Frost Memorial Wrestling Trust Fund
|When Lane was in junior high school (7th
& 8th grade), in Vernal, Utah he was very good in wrestling.
Although he never wrestled before entering junior high, as many of the other boys
because of his interest in rodeo, the coaches still had great
expectations for him.
Lane wrestled at about 75 pounds. During these two years he had 51 matches
with 45 wins,
4 losses and 2 tied matches.
When the family decided to move away from the
Utah winters and go down to Oklahoma
the coaches still were excited for
Lane because Oklahoma
schools were well known
for their wrestling programs. Unfortunately, the
high school Lane attended, Atoka High School,
did not have a wrestling
program. So that was basically the end of Lane's wrestling participation.
The family never forgot Lane's disappointment in not being able to
and they are in the process of creating the "Lane Frost
Memorial Wrestling Trust Fund"
to be used to help to bring
a wrestling program to Lane's high school, Atoka High School.
the coming months we will look for ways to raise money for the fund.
As a start, Mr. and Mrs. Frost will personally hand sign selected items
purchased from this web site for a
$5.00 donation to the wrestling fund.
They want to stress that all of the $5.00 will be donated to the fund.
The items will be signed at the time of purchase, with whatever name you
Please see the Catalog Page for
more details, and watch for other fund raisers.

|.Lane's feather in his hat-Lane started
wearing a feather in his hat when he was
pretty young. Elsie says that one of Lane's
heroes was Monty Henson,
who was the World Saddle Bronc Champion in
1975, 1976, and 1982.
Henson also had an impressive streak of qualifying
13 consecutive years
(1974 through 1986) for the National Finals
He was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in
Henson also wore a feather in his hat, and Lane thought that that was
Clyde remembers Lane finding a feather and saying that "that would
be his trademark.".
Elsie thinks the first feather was probably from a chicken hawk.
Lane also used turkey feathers.
The feathers would change over the
years, whenever Lane found something
different or unusual.
|Scholarships Given in Lane's Memory.- There
are 2 scholarship funds, with 3 different scholarships
that are given in memory of Lane every year.
The first scholarship fund was started by the Frosts with money received
the T shirts, posters, buckles etc. in Lane's name. A percentage of
that is sold that is authorized by the Frosts goes in to this
Each year 2 scholarships from this fund, one for $2000.00 and one for $1000.00
are awarded to
2 members of FFA (Future
Farmers of America) at Atoka High School in Atoka, OK.,
which is the
high school Lane graduated from.
The scholarships are awarded by a committee and are based on
grades and needs of the members.
The Frosts do not have anything to do
with choosing the recipients
The Frosts are very proud to do this, especially because Lane was a
member of the FFA
at Atoka High School. Luke Perry also made a few generous donations to
this fund after
the filming of "8 Seconds".
The second scholarship fund gives a $4000.00
scholarship to a participant at
the National High School Finals Rodeo each year. This scholarship is
given by the
Rodeo Cowboy Alumni in Lane's memory. A panel of judges, (the
Frosts are not involved in
selecting the winner), select the winner on
grades, needs and their future plans.
The Rodeo Cowboy
Alumni was started by John Hatley and also former rodeo cowboys
that wanted to get together with each other and give something back
They chose this scholarship as one of their projects and it is by
far the largest scholarship
out of the hundreds that are given at the High School Finals.
John died suddenly within the last year, and his wife Lois is handling
Plans are to keep the Lane Frost Memorial Scholarship Fund and also
John Hatley Memorial Scholarship Fund.
