Lamar Miller learning a lot from Frank Gore

According to the Miami Herald, Dolphins running back Lamar Miller has been working out with fellow Hurricane, 49ers running back Frank Gore and has learned quite a bit.

“The way Lamar is learning from Frank, it’s a beautiful thing,” Steelers linebacker Sean Spence, another former Cane, said this week.

Gore’s mentoring of Miller has been one of the neater Dolphins-flavored stories of the summer, the four-time Pro Bowler and 49ers star taking the second-year protege under his wing. They work out together twice a day – with a group of other NFL players in the morning in North Miami Beach, and just the two of them, with a trainer, on a Davie field at night.

“Since Lamar started gravitating toward Frank, his work ethic and mentality are unparalleled,” said Pete Bommarito, who runs the highly-regarded Bommarito Performance Systems, where Gore, Miller and many other NFL players train during offseason mornings.

Their agent Drew Rosenhaus recommended that they work together.

Miller, who almost assuredly will replace Detroit-bound Reggie Bush as Miami’s starter, began spending a lot of time around Gore a couple of months ago, at the suggestion of their agent, Drew Rosenhaus. Bommarito said Gore helped show Miller “how to take care of his body, what to do beyond what is required.”

Gore has noticed a change in Miller.

“His footwork got a lot better,” said Gore.
Bommarito has been really impressed with Miller.
“He’s the fastest running back I’ve ever seen,” said Bommarito, who’s trained players like Maurice Jones-Drew.
Miller has a lot to prove this year now that Bush is in Detroit.
