Dana Stubblefield: NFL Steroid Abuse

February 7, 2009

Dana Stubblefield is an American professional football player who has been a defensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers. Stubblefield proved to be a disgrace to the game as he took steroids and then lied about it when investigated. See a video and a biography of Dana Stubblefield here.

Stubblefield has been place on two years probation and fined for $5000 for lying to a federal agent about the steroid abuse, which was proved by an analysis test in 2003.

Prosecutors said Stubblefield “has provided timely, truthful and helpful cooperation” since his guilty plea.” He has spoken to investigators about “the distribution and use of illegal steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs in the National Football league, providing the names of players, trainers and others associated with the NFL.”

The fallout occurred after the investigators found the client list of BALCO, a laboratory based in California, which had the names of high-ranked professional sportsmen including MLB player Barry Bonds.

As a biography, Dana Stubblefield was born on November 14, 1970 in Cleves, Ohio so his age is 38. He attended the University of Kansas and was drafted in the first round of the 1993 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers.

Stubblefield was named as the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year after he started his career with 10.5 sacks. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 1994 and 1995 and was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1997. Dana later became a free agent, playing for the Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders and then New England Patriots in 2004.

Stubblefield’s name was found associated with the BALCO scandal in 2003. He was investigated and found to have lied to the agents. He currently serves as the coach at Valley Christian High School in California and has worked in a movie Reindeer Games with Ben Affleck.
