Members of the Taylor Hooton Foundation advisory board -- which also includes Reds reliever Jared Hughes -- have taken the pledge that they believe using performance enhancing drugs is illegal and dangerous and any athlete who uses such drugs is cheating their respective sport.

The friends and family of Taylor Hooton formed the Foundation in 2004 after his death at age 17 following his use of anabolic steroids.
