Ryan Leaf says spending the last few weeks in jail has been the best time of his life in the last 15 years.

Despite being a brief NFL star, his comments are not that surprising.

He has been battling prescription drug abuse for years.

The former NFL quarterback could spend the next 15 months locked down in Montana.

He first would go to a locked down treatment center, then on to a pre-release living center.

Leaf has had a running battle with painkiller addiction for the last several years.

Hopefully this next year and a half help clean him up for good.

Whether you are a fan of college sports or not is really not important. If you are a parent, and a parent of an athlete, ESPN has an article today that’s well worth reading. It involves NCAA players and drugs.

Why does this hit home?

Because most parents of athletic children think that their kids care too much about their bodies to do drugs. It’s obvious that’s not the case. Surely everyone remembers Lawrence Taylor’s battle with cocaine, and he was one of the best defensive players in the game. Ricky Williams was once considered one of the best running backs that the NCAA had every seen. He left the NFL and went to play in Canada so he could continue smoking pot. Only after he cleaned up, did he return to the NFL.

ESPN dives into the college drug culture, and shows how even the nation’s best collegiate athletes are not immune to messing around with marijuana or popping prescription drugs.

By now you’ve probably heard about the fallen Leaf, Ryan Leaf.

The former NFL #2 pick was popped not once, but twice this week for breaking into home and stealing prescription drugs.

Leaf was arrested in Montana and one set of reports indicated that he had Hydrocodone that was not in his name.

Authorities in Texas are already trying to revoke his probation there on unrelated drug charges.

It’s been a sad downward spiral for the former QB. But he’s one of the estimated 7,000,000 million people in America hooked on prescription drugs.

It’s pretty clear that his life is mimicking his career in the NFL. The ups and downs of drug use have him sitting in jail for what could be 30 days.

Leaf needs help. Leaf needs to turn his life around. If he has any friends left from the NFL, they need to come help him. He needs to beat his addictions and he needs the support for it.

It’s easy to rally around your quarterback when he’s leading you down the field in a game winning drive. But now that the roar of the crowd has been silenced and the game is long over, Leaf finds himself with an unsportsman like penalty that could have facing serious jail time.

Oxycontin is a serious drug, and even the fittest and toughest people can succumb to it.   If this report is true, maybe we need to take a closer look at stronger drug testing.   It starts with the pros, then through the NCAA schools, and perhaps high schools.   The NFL has testing.   Is it strict enough?

Myteensavers advocates home drug testing to keep kids in line.   It’s tragic to see young and talented people lose their lives to drugs.   2500 children start using for the first time every day.   Let’s keep our athletes and our children safe and drug free.

Oxycontin is just one of the 12 substances tested in the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.
