"I was asking Sam, ‘What are you reading before you’re hiking the ball? Are you looking at the corner?’ He’d tell me, ‘Yeah, I’m looking at the way he’s standing,’ things like that, just little things that he could tell me to help me in my game.”

Franks said he has been working on technique — footwork, hip positioning, looking back for the ball — in preparation for his Tuesday workout.

"I didn’t play with any technique back at school,” Franks said. "I was just playing on pretty much ability. I wanted to clean that up and make sure my technique was good.”
