I PLAY CLEAN...Making a Difference

Butkus and I Play Clean!
Hi!  My name is Jennifer London and I am a certified athletic trainer at a high school in Tennessee.  The last high school that I worked at (in Michigan) had received some educational materials (posters and informational sheets) about the I Play Clean campaign.  I found these materials extremely effective with the student athletes and many of them stopped using the supplements that they were taking.  I only had one using steroids but he eventually stopped also.  I was wondering if I could get another set of those materials for the school that I am currently working at.  I think these student athletes are extremely easily influenced due to their age but also the socioeconomic status of the area that they live in.  I think it would be beneficial and maybe I could get the whole football or basketball team to take the pledge.  That is the goal.  Anyways, any help you could offer would be great.  Thanks.
