A former volunteer football coach at Stone Memorial High School in Crossville pleaded guilty Monday for selling steroids to a player.

According to Sam Boevers with the state district attorney’s office in Crossville, James Wilson, 29, entered the plea in Cumberland County Criminal Court on a charge of possession of the Schedule 3 drug, Oxymetholone.

He received a suspended six-year sentence, but the case will be expunged from his record if he successfully completes eight years of probation, officials said.

He also is not to be on school grounds as part of the agreement.

Boevers said the incident took place in February 2009, after one of the players had mentioned to Wilson that he wanted to have more muscle.

“Mr. Wilson said, ‘I have something that might help you,’ and he sold him pills that he said he had taken,” Boevers said, reading the case file.

However, the student later became ill and had to be hospitalized, and the pills were later found to contain the anabolic steroid, the Boevers added.

The case was investigated by Mark Rosser of the Crossville Police Department and Tommy Thompson, a prosecutor from outside Cumberland County.

Stone Memorial principal Dr. Janet Brooker and Cumberland County Schools Superintendent Aarona Vanwinkle declined comment, although Vanwinkle said Wilson was not a paid employee of the school system.
