Christopher Key, a salesman who works with the company that allegedly supplied Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis deer antler spray, said he worked with an Auburn exercise scientist to help treat a former Auburn player who was recovering from a broken neck.
Key told Sports Illustrated he sold deer antler spray and other “new age” products to Alabama and LSU players.
He said David Pascoe, the scientist, through Auburn team doctors, “allowed him to treat safety Zac Etheridge’s broken neck using the light beam and chips, and his range of motion almost completely returned.”
Pascoe and Etheridge denied being treated by Key. Pascoe told Sports Illustrated he once considered retaining a lawyer to fight back against the company if they did not stop
Auburn–along with Alabama and LSU–has sent the company multiple cease-and-desist letters.
Etheridge did admit to the magazine he used S.W.A.T.S. bracelets, though, before the 2011 NFL combine.
