He's our newest recruit so we thought you might like to get to know him before the pre-season gets underway. 

1. A younger brother who plays for Melbourne

Jack Frost is the middle child, with an older sister and a younger brother, Sam Frost - #17 for the Melbourne Demons.

2. He was recruited from Williamstown

A town that produced his former coach, Nathan Buckley, as well as 364-gamer Brad Johnson. “Mr Football” Ted Whitten coached the side in the 1975 VFA season while current Brisbane Lions CEO, Greg Swann, was the President of VFA/VFL club Williamstown from 1995-98. While one of its more infamous players is Ned Kelly - rumoured to have played 11 games at the Club in 1873 – before getting reported for head butting an umpire.

3. He’s a late bloomer

Frost was a basketball who turned to footy late, starting out as a rookie – recruited by Collingwood with the 41st selection in the 2013 rookie draft when he was 21.

4. Drinks instant coffee

We're not too sure how instant coffee can be made good but Frost seems to know a way. We'll leave him to it.

5. He’s a motivator

You just need to take a look at his Twitter account for the #FrostyInspo

6. Frost brings the gold on Twitter

From Bieber to American mints, he’s got it covered.

7. He has eyebrows

It seems his eyebrows have been a topic of conversation for those around him so Frost took it upon himself to confirm the presence of his eyebrows #allnatural

8. His namesake

Not only is there a movie named after him (he was born in 1992 and the movie was released in 1998, definitely named after him), the character Jack Frost is featured in Rise of the Guardians and Santa Clause 3. His brother, Sam Frost, shares the name with a recent Bachelorette.
