Unless you hail from this area, you probably wouldn’t think steroids usage in high school athletics existed. What would athletes between the ages of 15-18 possibly need to stick needles in their butts for, right? Especially if you consider they’re not on the big stage of college, much less professional athletics. Well, turns out there is actually is some steroids use in high school sports, and we’re going to find out how much it exists in some states.
It has come to my attention that Texas and Florida will join New Jersey by invoking random performance-enhancing drug tests for high school athletes. In two weeks we are set to find out how much of a problem steroids use is in New Jersey high school sports when the results of their tests are released. For now, a recent University of Michigan report suggests 2.7% of high school seniors have used steroids. I just hope that number is exorbitantly high. Kids using steroids for high school athletics? I can’t think of much else more disheartening than that.Google+
