Franko has made it his mission to help the Red Devils raise the bar.
“He’s a great leader,” Brescia said. “He brings a lot of energy. He’s willing to do anything for the team.”
In doing so, Franko is merely passing down a tradition.
“I’m really just trying to bring down the energy that I got from the older kids,” Franko said. “The kids above us last year always emphasized giving it your all in the weight room before the season.
“I think us captains as a whole did a good job of showing these juniors what it takes to be successful on the field and hopefully that all pays off towards the end of the season.”
