Ravaughn Perkins

It appears he failed a drug test, presumably for a diuretic, based on this Flo article

Quoting Perkins:

"I got popped for a water pill. I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I'll be back next year even stronger and quicker. Now I have time to just focus on my par terre."

Although it was a dumb move, his honesty is refreshing.  Very rarely do you hear athletes not make excuses.  Also I'm glad for Saddoris to get the opportunity.  How can you not respect a kid who made it through the Naval Academy while becoming a 2 time D1 AA and now serves in the Marine Corp while making a world team?  Parents must be pretty darn proud.
