Bobby L. Barnes Biography

Title:
Head Football Coach at Buckeye Union High (Buckeye, AZ)
Position:
Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
Reasoning:

“Almost daily we see and hear through the media that a professional athlete has admitted to or is believed to have used illegal steroids for the purpose of enhancing their physical ability to perform. Yet to this date, the consequences of their actions have been mostly verbal threats. I do not wish any professional athlete to be made an example of, but if this committee and professional sports wants to see results they must come up with a comprehensive punishment where the youth of today will see that all levels answer for their actions.”
