Of course, our school athletes are already tested. However, the coaches
(allegedly) know when the test is going to be given, since they actually
take the sample, and there are several of the JV and middle school athletes
who are (allegedly) able to provide an emergency supply of clean test
sample. One of the football players has a very interesting juvenile rap
sheet, violent charges, as well as drug sales. He shows up at school
(allegedly) stoned out of his mind, and the teachers (allegedly) just look
the other way, since it's (allegedly) not healthy to interfere with a
winning program, since anyone who cares to comment on it stands a chance of
(allegedly) being "put up against the wall."
