  Former football QB pleads guilty for selling steroids

Football players apparently become exposed to steroids at a very young age. No wonder steroid use in the NFL is quite pervasive. Here’s a news report from Sun Herald:

A former Gulf Coast Community College quarterback has been given a five-year suspended sentence after pleading guilty to selling steroids.

Nineteen-year-old Jared Foster entered the plea Wednesday in Madison County Circuit Court.
A judge ordered Foster into a six-to-eight-month boot camp-style rehabilitation program at the state prison. The judge says Foster will go to prison if he doesn’t complete the program.

Foster was arrested in January after allegedly selling anabolic steroids to an informant.

At the time of the 2007 sale, Foster was playing for Gulf Coast, helping the Bulldogs win a share of the NJCAA/Jcfootball.com. By the time of his arrest, Foster had transferred to Ole Miss and was expected to sign with the football team. After his arrest, his scholarship offer was pulled.

There have been countless reports that suggest steroid use in football, particularly in the NFL, is more widespread than tests indicated. Lyle Alzado had revealed in his interview with Sports Illustrated prior to his death in 1992 that 90 percent of NFL players were ‘on the stuff’.

“I started taking anabolic steroids in 1969 and never stopped. It was addicting, mentally addicting. Now I’m sick, and I’m scared. Ninety percent of the athletes I know are on the stuff. We’re not born to be 300 lbs or jump 30ft. But all the time I was taking steroids, I knew they were making me play better. I became very violent on the field and off it. I did things only crazy people do. Once a guy sideswiped my car and I beat the hell out of him. Now look at me. My hair’s gone, I wobble when I walk and have to hold on to someone for support, and I have trouble remembering things. My last wish? That no one else ever dies this way.”

Alzado died at the age of 43 due to brain tumor. He attributed his disease to his of anabolic steroids; his physician, however, did not agree with Alzado’s assertion.

Then it was Jim Haslett’s turn to confess in 2005. The former Steelers player admitted he had been using steroids throughout his career and that he was not just the one who was doing some juicing. Haslett said that the Pittsburgh Steelers teams, from the 1970s to 1980s, had used steroids to dominate the sport.

The Steelers are the oldest and most championed franchise in the American Football Conference, winning the Super Bowl five times.
