While some did not care for Frank's broadcast style as Nate's right hand man he was a devoted True Blue Eagle. He was a great ambassador for GSU football. I did like his on air comments. Frank was among those very instrumemtal in getting Erk at GSU. I am truly saddened at his passing. Rest in Peace Frank.
