AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas is a hotbed of high school football, where the Friday night lights burn brighter and many of the athletes are among the biggest, fastest and strongest in the country.
A key state leader is pushing to make Texas kids the cleanest athletes as well.
Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, a Republican, is proposing a sweeping mandatory random testing program in public schools for steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs.
And it would go far beyond football. Athletes in baseball, basketball, track and other sports likely would be tested, too.

Texas High Schools to begin steroid testing?
As reported here(KLTV7), Texas high schools are considering anti-doing measures. We have reported that New Jersey high schools plan to test high schoolers, and Illinois is considering such tests. We also documented a New York call for high school testing.
When national surveys find that 4 to 6 percent of high school students have illegally used steroids, that's a problem. This is is why New Jersey has become the first state to mandate random steroid tests for its high school athletes and why other states consider such proposals.

There should be a test for hypocrisy too and if found dirty; 1 day in the barrel.
