Garry Frank


For 9 years I've been taking sports teams into prisons all over the USA.

We mainly play softball and Arm Wrestle.

I had the opportunity Nov 3rd to Go to Angola Louisiana State Prison my 67th prisons I've taken teams into. I was the 1st sports team to ever play in the prison.

Garry Frank is the recreation Director at Angola. It's amazing what he has done at the prison.

It was real cool to hang out with him all day and pick his brain about lifting and sports in general. I'm not a power lifter, but it's was awesome.


that must have been real cool, frank is the man..

what kind of info did you learn from him, that might have changed/reinforced ideas you have for lifting/sport, during that conversation?
