Video: Hiking the Grand Canyon with Scott Frost
Marty Smith hiked more than 20 miles of the Grand Canyon with Nebraska’s new football coach Scott Frost as part of a special edition of Marty Smith’s America that airs June 14 at 8 p.m. EDT on ESPN. “We get so busy with football,” Frost says as he sits beside the Colorado River halfway through the hike but with the grueling climb yet to come. “I think it’s real easy in the world today, and especially in our jobs, to get focused so much on what’s right in front of you that you forget how many great things are out there. … This clears my mind.”
The boys & me just competed the most difficult physical challenge of our lives.
Hiked 10 miles into Grand Canyon, down to mouth of Colorado River to interview @Coach_Frost — then 10M back out, up the canyon, 5000+ feet of climb.
Damn near ended us.#MartySmithsAmerica
