The Calhoun High School student arrested earlier this month for allegedly selling steroids on campus had no connections to the school’s athletic programs, according to one school official.
“He was not an athlete,” Calhoun athletics director and football coach Hal Lamb told the AJC, “and it had nothing to do with the athletic programs of high schools in this area. When it first came out, it was rumored that there might be a lot of schools involved with it, and (police investigators) have found nothing.”
Calhoun has one of state’s most success football programs, reaching the Class AA state championship games in each of the last two seasons under Lamb.
According to the Calhoun Times, the Calhoun Police Department found numerous vials and pills of suspected anabolic steroids after searching the car of a student, who was a juvenile and whose named was not disclosed. The student was taken in custody and released to his parents on March 2, without being arrested or charged.
