Thumbs up Duke coach Franks saves man from drowning

Duke coach Franks saves man from drowning

RALEIGH, N.C. - A trip to retrieve a boat turned into a lifesaving mission for Duke football coach Carl Franks.

Franks was at Rolling View Marina on Falls Lake on Friday morning when he pulled a man from a submerged sports utility vehicle. The man apparently had a seizure and drove into the water.

"If we hadn't gone down there, I would hate to think what would have happened because there was no one else at the marina," Franks said. "It was just a matter of being in the right place at the right time."

A great story indeed. I'm sure he feels good for being able to help that man.

Yes, very good story.

I'm not going to rule it out, but Duke probabely wont win a national title this season, but coach Franks has had a even bigger impact than a national title.
