Minnesota Grey Ducks
Frost began his professional career in the Developmental Simulation Football League with the Minnesota Grey Ducks, who selected him in the third round of the 2047 DSFL Draft with the 21st overall pick. The Grey Ducks originally drafted Frost as a runningback, but they soon switched him to wide receiver. Frost also was promoted to the number one wide out on the team after losing multiple impact players to the ISFL.
Frost made his debut in Week 1 against the Portland Pythons, recording 7 receptions for 70 yards. He had a breakout game in Week 2 against the London Royals where he hauled in 9 passes for 92 yards, in a 17-24 loss. He followed up the game with his first 100-yard performance, where he dismantled the Kansas City Coyotes with 6 catches for 107 yards and a 51 yard catch where he got tackled on the 1-yard line. With Frost's help, Minnesota got their first win, 30-26.
Frost finally scored his first touchdown in Week 9 the London Royals, where he caught 5 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown. He helped Minnesota get their fourth win of the season, with the final score being 23-15. He followed up the performance with another touchdown the following week, when he finished with 3 catches for 53 yards and a touchdown, which would be his final one of the season. With this performance Minnesota got their third win of their four-game win streak. That win would come in handy to clinching the playoffs later in the season, where Minnesota held the tie-breaker over Kansas City. Going into Week 14, Minnesota was 6-7 and desperate for a win, and they got it. Frost caught 4 passes for 62 yards, which helped Minnesota get a win over the Bondi Beach Buccaneers, finish the season 7-7, and secure the second seed in the North. Frost finished the season with 995 yards on 74 receptions and 2 touchdowns, which was enough for Frost to be selected to the DSFL Pro Bowl, as well as the All-Rookie Team.
In the Grey Ducks Northern Conference Championship Game against the Portland Pythons, Frost had a great game with 119 yards (career-high) on 8 receptions and added a touchdown to boot. Minnesota would lose the game 26-38, after Portland came back from an early deficit. His 8 receptions helped him get a Minnesota Grey Ducks record, when he tied Vincent Sharpei Jr for most receptions in a playoff game.
Frost was given a lot of praise going into the 2047 season. He was named the starting wide receiver from day one. One of his downsides was his temper and his frequent injuries. In week 1 he got into a fight with a DSFL superstar corner back, The Laz. Frost stated that: "He hit me late and I didn't like it. I did what I did and there isn't anything that's gonna fix that. Just got to be better." Frost also injured his ankle in the same game and was listed as questionable for week 2, but played anyways.
Frost had an amazing 2048 campaign. His first breakout game came in week one, where his scored three times, and had a Minnesota Grey Ducks record 198 yards, and tied the record for receiving touchdowns by a Grey Duck in a game. Funny enough, he had more touchdowns in this game than he did all last season, which helped them beat the Portland Pythons, 41-14. He did fall off a bunch in the next game, where he posted, at the time, the worst game of his career. He only had a total of 33 yards. They did beat the London Royals however, 27-14. He didn't have another touchdown until weeks 6 through 9, his longest stretch of games with a touchdown. Frost had another great game in week 8. He had 6 catches on 14 targets and 153 yards, as well as catching 2 touchdown passes, but the Grey Ducks fell to the last place Portland Pythons. He also had a great game in the return department, with 5 returns and 124 yards, his first 100-yard return game.
Frost wouldn't stop in the second half of the season. He didn't have a great game in week 9 catching wise. He caught 2 passes, on 10 targets, for 88 yards, and added a touchdown. He also caught his season-long, 74-yard touchdown in week 9. Which helped successfully sweep the London Royals in the season series. He had a fantastic game in week 10, when he caught 7 passes, for 95 yards, also adding 74 yards to his return total. Before week eleven, Frost was suspended from earning TPE and using the league Discord, for "threats" he sent to former teammates. This suspension would last 4 weeks, and was appealed, but nothing has been said by the head office. In week 11, Frost was 24 yards shy of his first 1,000-yard season and was hopefully going to eclipse the mark in this game. He set a new career-low in yards with 32 and in catches with 2, but did meet the 1k mark for the season. They would narrowly beat the Dallas Birddogs, 17-14. He bounced back with his third 100-yard game of the season. He had 10 targets, caught 6 of them, and had 116 yards through the air, while also adding 62 return yards. Frost got his first career win against the Tijuana Luchadores, 44-30. Their week twelve showing helped the Grey Ducks improve to 8-4 and successful clinched the DSFL North. With their clinched spot, they would be locked in for three home games in a row. In their week 13 match up with the Norfolk Seawolves, Minnesota was looking to get their third team sweep of the season (Dallas Birddogs & London Royals) and continue their winning streak. To this point of the season Frost had reached 88+ yards 8 out of the 12 games, showing his improvements over last season, where he reached the mark only 4 times. Frost continued with another 100-yard game in week 13, where he caught 9 passes on 15 targets for 124 yards. 9 games over 88 yards on the season which is the most consistency of his career so far. Frost and co were scheduled to play the Bondi Beach Buccaneers who were 7-6 to this point and had the third-best passing defense in the league. Frost finished his season with 6 receptions for 47 yards, beating Bondi Beach and getting the top seed in the DSFL. Frost ended his year with 73 receptions (11th in the DSFL), 1297 receiving yards (10th), and 8 touchdowns (tied for 8th), as well as having the league-high 17.8 yards per reception, which is league-leading for a minimum number of receptions being 70. Frost also finished with 33 kicks returned (9th), 686 return yards (4th), and 20.8 yards per return, which would be 4th for a minimum number of returns being 30.
Frost and the Grey Ducks had the top spot in the DSFL North and received a home-field advantage for the Northern Conference Championship Game against the Kansas City Coyotes. The Coyotes had the second to last-ranked defense in passing and total offense, but Minnesota had close to the top in all categories making them the clear favorite. Frost was asked about the whole season and all he has been through and he said: "It's been a long road and a rocky one at that. I love this team and they didn't need to put up with my b-s all year, but they did, and I have evolved. I try to not be as childish around people now. To answer your other question, this isn't my last DSFL game and not the last one I am going to win." The Grey Ducks and Frost showed up in their first playoff game since they lost to the Portland Pythons. Kansas City's biggest and only lead was only three points and that was mostly because Frost kept them in the driving distance all game. It won't wow you when you look at yards, but he did have a huge game when it comes to scoring. Worthington connected with Frost in the first and second quarter for the first two scores of the game for the Grey Ducks to put them up 14-7 with 11:13 left in the first half. He wouldn't have much more going for him, since the Coyotes started using safety help over the top of Frost's side of the field. Frost finished the game with 6 receptions on 12 targets, 68 yards, and 2 touchdowns to help the Grey Ducks move on to Ultimini XXXIII with a 32-27 victory.
Minnesota went into Ultimini XXXIII with a clear mindset and a heavy favorite. The Norfolk Seawolves got out to a 24-0 lead at the end of the first quarter, until fellow wide out Billy Stinkwater caught a pass in the red zone for a touchdown. Towards the end of the half, Frost caught his third and final touchdown of the postseason (career-high) which made the score 14-24. Later they got stopped on the 1-yard line and had to settle for a field goal, 24-17. Multiple chances limited Minnesota from coming away with this game and ultimately that was the final score.
Following the 2048 season, Frost was cut from his ISFL team, the Yellowknife Wraiths, because of trouble he had, had with GMs and multiple teammates. Thus making him stay down the third year with the Grey Ducks. Before the season, Frost would change his number from 4 to 23 in honor of his brother Ryder Frost, who sadly passed away from a car crash the year prior. He also wore the number in college.
Coming off of an impressive 2048 season, Frost was looking to continue and improve at the DSFL level. He didn't exactly improve, seeing as they just lost their powerhouse QB, Tobias Worthington Iii to the ISFL, and additions like "Captain" Billy Stinkwater emerged. Frost was a factor in the passing game all season, but was no longer the Grey Ducks number one option. The Ducks also drafted Calvin Spiff, who is planning to be the replacement for Lane once he leaves in a few years for the ISFL.
Frost was rearing to go for the 2049 season, seeing as they had to play the Portland Pythons (a team he historically dominates) in week 1. Frost didn't have a bad game, but very low standers for a guy like him. He finished with 2 catches for 28 yards and a touchdown. This would mark the first time he ever scored in a Week 1 matchup. Frost had another pitiful game week 2 against the London Royals, he finished with 3 catches for 21 yards in the 30-27 loss. Frost's first decent game came in week 3 when he caught 4 passes for 72 yards in the blowout 27-7 loss to the Kansas City Coyotes pushing the Ducks to 0-3 to start the season. Frost went all out in the Week 5 matchup with the Tijuana Luchadores where he put up 5 catches for 84 yards and 2 touchdowns, helping the Duckies move to 1-4. Frost broke out in week 6 with 4 receptions, 142 yards, and 2 touchdowns in their second consecutive win against the Norfolk Seawolves. Frost touchdown streak would come to an end in week 7, but this was the first time all season Frost was the leading receiver for the Ducks. He put up 6 receptions, and 111 yards in the comeback loss to the Bondi Beach Buccaneers.
In week 9, Frost had an amazing game against a team that locked him down in an earlier matchup, that team being the London Royals. Frost collected 76 yards and 2 touchdowns, making it the first time he has ever had 2 touchdowns in 3 different games. Frost ended the season defeating the Bondi Beach Buccaneers 33-23 while racking up 69 yards through the air. The week prior the Ducks clinched a playoff spot for the sixth season in a row and it would mark their fifth division title in those six seasons.
In the Conference Championship, Frost had a great game and helping his career playoff totals. With 1:19 left in the third quarter, Frost caught a pass from Owen Farrell for a 7 yard touchdown, putting the Grey Ducks up 20-3. They won the game 23-10 and went to their second Ultimini. Frost caught 8 passes for 97 yards and a touchdown. Frost was one of the only bright spots for their offense in the Ultimini where he caught 6 passes for 156 yards. They would loss the game by only scoring 7 points and allowing 33 points. This was Frost's second straight Ultimini loss. Frost was selected to the Pro-Bowl as a kick returner for his performance on the field.
