Welcome to the Hammer: Quarterback Harrison Frost Joins the Tiger-Cats

During the offseason, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have been working to overhaul their roster as they prepare for the 2024 season. The Tiger-Cats’ trend regarding personnel decisions is to add younger talent to their roster and add more depth to their most important position groups. That trend continues as the CFL Transactions list shows that the Tiger-Cats have signed American quarterback Harrison Frost.

Frost is the latest quarterback to join a quarterback room for the Tiger-Cats, including CFL-veteran Bo Levi Mitchell, 2023 Tiger-Cats rookie sensation Taylor Powell, and former BC Lions backup quarterback Kevin Thomson. The Tiger-Cats newest quarterback prospect comes to the CFL after spending the 2023 XFL season with the Seattle Sea Dragons. While in Seattle, Frost did not get a chance to make an impact for the Sea Dragons due to being inactive, and he did not get selected during the XFL-USFL merger that created the UFL.

The 6’1″, 194-pound quarterback Frost is a native of Kennesaw, Georgia. He started his college football career at the NCAA FCS level with the Mercer University Bears from 2017 until 2020. While at Mercer, Frost played in 28 games and threw 87 completions with 169 pass attempts for 1,047 yards, resulting in nine touchdowns and eight interceptions.

In 2021, Frost transferred to the NCAA Division II University of West Georgia. Frost played in 22 games for the Wolves during the 2021 and 2022 seasons, and while at West Georgia, Frost had two breakout seasons, showing that he has the potential to be an effective playmaker. During the 2021 and 2022 seasons, Frost completed 548 passes with 880 pass attempts, resulting in 6,730 passing yards, including 50 touchdown passes with only 18 interceptions. He also ran the ball 35 times for 51 yards and one rushing touchdown.

In July 2023, Frost joined the University of Virginia’s coaching staff as a graduate assistant. While playing at West Georgia, Frost showed he could make plays and lead an explosive offensive unit. As Frost chooses to continue to pursue a professional football career rather than a coaching career at the NCAA FBS level, the Georgia native will come to Hamilton hungry to make an impact on the field.
