Is steroids a problem in high school sports?

Thursday’s Mitchell Report linked several of today’s prominent players to using steroids, like Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and even hometown heroes like Mark McGwire (Damien) and Jason Giambi (South Hills). Giambi admitted to using steroids months ago, and Huskies baseball coach Kevin Smith said he would love to have Giambi come back and talk to his players about the negative effects of using steroids. But seriously, how prevalent is steroid use in high school sports today? Do you suspect high school players, do you know of anyone or have you heard of anyone using it. You won’t be allowed to name names here, but your observations and discussions are welcome.
