He is the first Kern County recipient of the Top Scholar-Athlete Award since Liberty's Mariah Alvidrez won it in 2010.
The section awards the honor annually from candidates supplied by schools.
Frost, a linebacker, made 103 tackles and four fumble recoveries as a senior, including one that he returned for a touchdown during Liberty's upset of top seed Clovis during the section's Division I playoffs.
