A caption on a high school football photo caught my eye last week. It wasn't the football action that drew my attention, but rather the fact that the photo was taken at West Warwick's Maznicki Field.  That jogged a memory, so I started digging. The field is named for Frank "Monk" Maznicki, legendary football player and coach who was a lifelong West Warwick resident. When he died, his obit began, 'Frank ‘Monk' Maznicki, 93, of Coaches Court [West Warwick], made his final run to the end zone on Saturday, Dec.
