Drug tests on UAAP players mandatory prior to start of season, says league chief

BoyingBoying Member ✭✭✭✭✭✭
Aside from the league-imposed drug-testing procedure, UAAP president Nilo Ocampo says all schools have their own policies to crack down on drug use among their student athletes.

DRUG-TESTING is mandatory for all basketball players in the UAAP, but it is a one-time procedure done at the start of every season.

UAAP president Nilo Ocampo bared that the country's premier collegiate league has introduced the mandatory testing procedure in an effort to crack down on drug use among players.

The UAAP head, however, said the one-off procedure is only done prior to the start of the campaign and does not cover athletes from other sports outside the centerpiece event of basketball.

Calls for a more stringent testing policy have grown in the wake of the arrest on Tuesday of Far Eastern University starting center Anthony Hargrove and reserve Adam Mohammed for alleged marijuana possession.

The arrests happened four months before the start of the next UAAP season.

“May mandatory (drug testing) but only for basketball players and is done before the season,” Ocampo admitted.

Aside from the league-imposed drug-testing procedure, the UAAP chief said all schools have their own policies to crack down on drug use among their student athletes.

“Meron kaming mandatory drug testing sa league, and then all schools have them also,” Ocampo said.

Ocampo preferred not to comment on the Hargrove case in his capacity as league chief, saying the FEU slotman has yet to be charged or much less convicted of any crime.

“Of course, nakakagulat. Pero until proven guilty naman ‘yan. It’s hard to comment until we see the official police report,” Ocampo said.

FEU officials have yet to make an official statement regarding the incident but Ocampo believes the school will take proper action upon further investigation.

“I’m sure FEU will take care of it na hindi na dadaan sa board,” said Ocampo.

    hindi lang dapat mandatory drug testing ang gawin. those who use performance-enhancing drugs must also be banned from the league.

    There should also be random drug testing DURING the season itself.

    i agree. gawin ang random drug testing sa kalagitnaan ng season without any announcement coming from the league. at the same time, an independent body, in coordination with the PSC, must conduct the random drug testing.

    2 FEU cagers, 3 youths yield marijuana
    http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/366127/2-feu-cagers-3-youths-yield-marijuana

    Five students, two of them members of the FEU Tamaraws—Far Eastern University’s basketball team—were arrested on Tuesday for possession of marijuana.
    A report submitted by the Manila Police District’s Sampaloc station identified the FEU students as Anthony Hargrove Jr., 22, the school’s American import, and Adam Mohammed, 22, a Canadian.
    The report added that the two were spotted smoking around Tuesday midnight on Nicanor Reyes Street, near the school campus and when searched, they were found to be carrying marijuana in their pockets.
    School officials declined to comment and did not reply when asked if they would be conducting their own probe of the incident.
    Meanwhile, three young men who said they were students of a flying school were arrested for selling three marijuana bricks worth P18,000 to undercover policemen in Quezon City.
    Senior Insp. Roberto Razon Jr. said that Michael Levin Molo, 20; Donn Umberto Gabriel, 19; and Robert Dwight Sison, 19; had been selling marijuana for about a year.
    “These kids come from well-to-do families. I do not know why they need to sell illegal drugs,” he added. - Nancy C. Carvajal and Jeannette I. Andrade

    2 football coaches nabbed for drug pushing

    The Philippine Star
    Posted at 03/02/2013

    MANILA, Philippines - Two coaches from the country’s top school football teams were arrested in a drug bust in Sampaloc, Manila Thursday morning.

    La Salle Greenhills (LSGH) high school coach Jhun Roy Torrenocha, 26; University of the East (UE) collegiate coach Gerald Orcullo, 30; and their companion, Clint Torres, were arrested in a house at the corner of P. Noval and España Boulevard at past 5 a.m. by undercover police officers, according to a report by Manila Police District (MPD) Station 4 chief Superintendent James Afalla.

    An insider said the policemen, led by Police Officer 3 Roo Reyes, posed as buyers and arrested the three suspects right after the transaction. An undetermined amount of marijuana leaves were reportedly seized from the suspects.

    UE physical education director Rodrigo Roque told The STAR that Orcullo – whose brother, Jerome, is also a coach of the school’s football team – had reportedly been absent without leave since July 2012.

    LSGH coach Freddie Estacion confirmed in a telephone interview that Torrenocha is indeed the high school football team’s coach but refused to comment further.

    Orcullo, Torrenocha and Torres are being held at MPD Station 4 pending their inquest on drug charges.

    Torrenocha’s girlfriend, who asked that her name be withheld, said she had been looking for him since Thursday. According to Estacion, Torrenocha had told his girlfriend he had a bad headache.


    Mukhang mahilig sa sports ang police maynila. :D
