The University of Waterloo football Warriors will come clean on June 14.

That’s the date the university, its sports federation and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport will disclose the names of the team’s drug cheats uncovered after unprecedented team-wide banned substance tests were conducted eight weeks ago.

The joint news conference will likely answer some of the questions dogging the team in the wake of a steroid controversy that ignited at UW in late March.

The fuse was lit once Waterloo Regional Police charged a UW player with trafficking drugs after a large stash of steroids and human growth hormone were found in his possession.

Canadian Interuniversity Sport has had 56 positive drug tests, 45 of those were football players, since the federation began testing for banned substances in 1990.

A pair of football Warriors flunked drug tests over the years, Steve Dean in 1992 and Shawn Dyson in 1997. Both had used anabolic steroids.

But never before has a player been accused of selling illegal drugs in a CIS locker room in what is already Canadian university sport’s biggest drug scandal in history.

As part of its on-going investigation into the alleged trafficking ring, the centre has also tested select football players at Wilfrid Laurier, the University of Guelph and Hamilton’s McMaster University.

No positive drug test results had been reported by the centre to Laurier, a spokesperson told The Record on Tuesday.

The Guelph Mercury reported Tuesday that University of Guelph athletic director Tom Kendall was “absolutely confident” his team was drug-free.
