Not proven, suppositions only, albeit strong ones.
The athletics people at Loyola H.S., where F.M coaches could, in theory, provide more insight into Frank.

That's where this is most interesting to me, because Loyola is such a high profile and highly regarded program in California and sometimes nationally. "Doc" Meza has been there for years, he's not the head coach but is definitely a fixture enough that other coaches recognize him. If he cheated, I'd think the Loyola coaches and athletes would surely know?
Yes, the Loyola crew would know and if word gets out that the good doc. engaged in taking shortcuts to success in the marathon, his credibility and status would be damaged.
The best thing F.M. can do now would be to give his side of the story.
It is curious that no one approaches him, to get a more valuable picture regarding the different events he took part in

If F.M. was cheating, the Loyola crew would definitely not know nor be trying to keep it a secret. They are a strong program with a good reputation, and their head coach Lalo Diaz would not stand for that, especially with their Catholic education that emphasizes integrity. If he was proven to be a cheater, I believe he would be outta there. If F.M. was cheating, I think the only people who would know would be himself and the people who are helping him get away with it.
