    I would only choose B if there were a semi-colon or if it there were two sentences. As it stands, I see no possiblity besides A.

    A is correct. 'So' doesn't work here, but you could rephrase the sentence: 'Frank is a fine athlete, and so was his father'.
    I definitely would not say 'such' or 'nor'.
