All five starting offensive linemen, including Hayden Urbanik, Brendan Flaherty, Austin Keeney, Gavin Bussard and Zach Pittinger, are in their final season at Manchester Valley.
Frank also throws to several talented receivers. Tyler Cherigo, Joey Bien, Zach Heron and Chad Kolper all rank among the county's top 15 pass catchers.
"I can trust them, and they can catch the ball," he said of his receiving corps. "Tyler is a good possession receiver, and Joey will find spaces and get open. Zach is 6-5, and I can just throw the ball up to him. Chad makes plays, and is really good in the open field."
While the receivers have helped Frank flourish, he and Shermeyer both recognize that his running and passing skills have been augmented by an experienced offensive line that has shown great improvement since the program's inaugural 2009 season.
"While Dom has been the cornerstone of our building effort, this entire senior class has been important," Shermeyer said. "Without those guys in front of him, Dom would never have been able to achieve the things he did."
Frank also brings a determination into the Manchester Valley huddle, as exemplified by his last-minute effort in an Oct. 12 game at Century.
Trailing 28-25 with less than a minute remaining, Frank and the Manchester Valley offense took over at their own 3-yard line. In just three plays, Frank had moved the Mavericks to the Knights' 11-yard line after completions to Cherigo, Bien and Heron.
The drive stalled, as Heron's sideline catch of a potential game-winning touchdown pass was ruled out of bounds and Frank was sacked on the game's final play.
That comeback attempt at Century came up just short, but Frank's performance in the season opener was the one that really set the tone for the successful campaign.
In a game that featured several ties and lead changes, Frank led a second-half charge as the Mavericks defeated a Brunswick team that has made several recent appearances in the Class 1A playoffs.
Frank said Manchester Valley, "showed right away that we were a team to be reckoned with." Indeed, that three-point victory over Brunswick started the team's run.
Even with the team's first-ever playoff berth, Frank knows his time at Manchester Valley is nearing its end.
He plans to play college football at either Division II Shippensburg University or on the Division III level at Stevenson or McDaniel.
His chosen major will match perfectly with his personality.
"I'll be going into criminal justice," Frank said. "I want to do something that always keeps my adrenaline going."
