Author Profile: 

After making the first string on his high school football team, Craig is at the top of his game. However, Craig's elation does not last long, as his best friend Ray suddenly starts to outshine Craig and the rest of the team. Craig discovers Ray's secret to success is a regimen of "vitamins," which turn out to be steroids. Craig quickly picks up Ray's vitamin plan, and soon enjoys the drug's benefits. Once again, Craig is at the top of his game, but things take a turn for the worse when Craig experiences "roid rage," a dangerous side effect of steroids. Feeling that the risks outweigh the benefits, Craig decides he must tell everyone the truth behind his sporting achievements, and help Ray understand the potentially deadly cost of steroid use.
