New Nebraska football head coach Scott Frost has his work cut out to turn the Cornhuskers into a national power once again. He knows it, and he’s putting in the hard work on the recruiting trail to make it happen.

Here’s a cute story that proves this point to perfection.

While Frost was recruiting four-star defensive end Caleb Tannor, Frost went to visit Tannor’s mother at Rainbow Elementary in DeKalb County. When he arrived, she was cleaning up the school cafeteria. So Frost went right to work helping her.

“He helped with all that stuff,” Miller Grove High School head coach Justin Larmond said, via Huskers Illustrated. “He just happened to be there at the time they were cleaning up. He just pitched in and did everything. He picked chairs up, helped take out the trash. All that stuff.

“She absolutely loved it. She called me afterwards and she talked with me about it. That really caught her attention.”

Not only did it catch her attention, it helped Frost land the coveted pass rusher, who had offers from other powerhouse schools like Florida and Auburn. It just goes to show you that hard work does pay off sometimes. Though, as Nick Saban has proved a few times, knowing how to boogie doesn’t hurt, either.
