Dear Athletic Support: My son will be a sophomore on the high school football team next year. This winter he’s going through his first-ever varsity offseason training program. As a mother, I worry about his health. He hasn’t fully grown into his body like a lot of the other boys, but all the coaches keep telling him to gain weight and get stronger. This has led my son to start taking different supplements. Mainly it’s just creatine and a whey protein mix. Are there any downsides to these supplements? — Working It Out
