Frank G.

Berwick native Frank G. is no stranger to the injuries that come along with living an active lifestyle. When injury struck, Frank turned to Allied Services to help him get back in the game.

The retired superintendent of Dallas and Tunkhannock school districts started playing sports when he was just a young boy. After four years of playing varsity football and baseball in high school, Frank went on to play football at Wilkes College. He went on to play several years of semi-professional baseball in Sunday leagues and coached football teams ranging in conferences from junior high to minor league professional. Following the end of his own athletic career, Frank went on to balance his various roles in education with being a three-season PIAA sports official.

During his more than 30 year-long officiating career, Frank sustained injuries to his rotator cuff and Achilles tendon, both of which required surgery and physical therapy. He chose to rehabilitate at the Heinz Tunkhannock Rehab Center just a short drive from his then office.

Frank’s team of therapists constructed a plan and set of goals in order to have him back to officiating within a 6-8-week time frame. This plan included Frank receiving therapy twice weekly to increase the strength of the affected areas and his overall mobility. Thanks to the guidance and expertise of the therapists at Allied Services, comfortably met this goal and was able to return to doing what he loved.

Today, Frank lives in Mocanaqua with his wife of 41 years, Terry. He is a father of 3 daughters and a very active grandfather to six young boys.
