Description

Of all Podium Sports Academy's attackmen, Calgary native Nathan Moore stands the best chance of getting a lacrosse scholarship at a U.S. college. But at 5'10" and 125 lbs, Nathan's told by the scouts that he has some filling out to do before he can take the hard hits. Waiting for his body to catch up to his dreams isn't an option, so Nathan takes drastic measures to build muscle fast -- steroids. Nathan quickly sees the effects on his body, but just as fast the drugs start to affect him in ways he can't control . . . ways that also have a game-changing impact on his Podium friends.
