08:50 AM ET 07.13 | So this is what your new Dolphins starting running back is doing while much of the NFL vacations: Running. Lifting. Squatting. Sled-pulling. Pushing to validate every ounce of faith the Dolphins have placed in their gifted young back. What makes the monotonous grind more pleasurable for Lamar Miller is that he is doing it alongside his friend and fellow Hurricane, Frank Gore. "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. 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 another change since they became workout buddies: "His footwork got a lot better." Privately, the Dolphins believe Miller can be not merely a good starting back, but a great one.

Good for him, but what about Marcus Lattimore? Frank could do some mentoring for his teammate too

Gore begin mentoring Lattimore the day after Lattimore was injured. Now they happen to be on the same team and Gore is helping Lattimore learn the 49er playbook. The 2 of them could not do physical workouts this off season due to doctors orders, Lattimore is still rehabbing and that must be done with the supervision of a doctor or trainer.

Ah, I see.

I really hope Lattitmore makes a positive impact in the NFL. I feel bad for the kid. That injury with SC was devastating. . . and ugly to watch.

I hope Lattamore recovers he would be good for the game bad for the opposition but that would make things more interesting!

I'd like to think she did, between acting gigs and inventing cell phone technology.
