MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ — BrawlHouse announces Eddie Hummel of Roselle Park as the first recipient of the William Frost Memorial Scholarship.

The William Frost Memorial Schollarship provides a student athlete from Roselle Park unlimited privileges to all the programs offered at BrawlHouse allowing them to pursue their greatness.

Hummel is a 7th grader at Roselle Park middle school who has been wrestling and competing in judo for over 8 years. Craig Frost, William’s son and BrawlHouse Wrestling coach said, "I think Eddie deserves this scholarship because he embodies the warrior spirit. Much like the traits my father instilled in me such as; thinking aggressively and always seeking ways to reach and accomplish your goals. I see these same qualities in Eddie. He is not only a great wrestler, but also a great student and he gives back to the sport. That was one of the main things my father preached to me was to always give back to the sport that has given so much to me."

It is BrawlHouse’s mission to work with athletes to assist them in harnessing their athletic achievement as fuel to live their life with power, purpose, confidence and focus. William “Bill” Frost lived his life believing in those values and instilling them in the mentored youth athletes from Roselle Park with whom he worked with for over 25 years.

According to BrawlHouse owner and Managing Member, David Martin, “the formation of this scholarship is extremely important to BrawlHouse. First, for what it stands for and for whose spirit it is named after. Second, we are honored to have Bill’s son Craig as a coach and one of the leaders of BrawlHouse’s wrestling program." 

Bill positively impacted the lives of Roselle Park youth student athletes for over 25 years. He was an active member of Roselle Park’s youth baseball community.

"It is not often that someone like Bill comes along, commits for as many years as he did to positively impact the community he lived in. For these reasons and for so many more, we knew that we needed to do what we could to insure that Bill’s name and spirit lived on,” said

Born in Bridgton, Maine, William lived in Roselle Park for 30 years. He was a plant manager for the Occupational Center of Union County for 25 years. He served his country during the Vietnam War in the United States Navy and was a coach for the Roselle Park Youth Baseball and an avid outdoorsman.

BrawlHouse athletes range in age from kindergarten to senior citizen and they believe that their “greatness is worth fighting for”.

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.
