Today's Prep Wednesday examines the issue from three perspectives--a former powerlifter who used steroids, a former high school and community college player who used them, and a local high school football program that stresses weightlifting and proper nutrition in building bulk without additives.

About 12 of his college teammates also used steroids, Korte said recently, and about 10 of his present teammates muscle up with "the Juice," despite risks that include sterility, liver damage and coronary heart disease.
