Two studies this year, one published in The Journal of the American Medical Association and another in The Journal of Pediatrics, found that weight problems among high school football players ??? especially linemen ??? far outpaced those of other male children and adolescents.
Now coaches and researchers fear that some young athletes may be endangering their health in an effort to reach massive proportions and attract the attention of college recruiters.

Uh oh. It looks like we’ve got a serious problem on our hands, guys. It looks like the Paper of Record has rehired Jayson Blair. How else to explain these bold fabrications? High school football players who are overweight? With jerseys that look about 1,000 sizes too small for them? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure high school football players are in their mid-to-late 20s, and GORGEOUS.
What’s up with Smash’s boots in that picture? It’s like “on the field, I’m a lightning fast tailback who’s quick to temper, but off the field I’m a granola lesbian whose dream vacation would be a week camping in Yellowstone.”
