The school's first athletic recruit in its 10-year existence, McKesson not only excelled on both sides of the ball during the Falcons' 8-2 football season, he also excelled in the classroom. With his 3.6 GPA, he's ranked second in his class. First-year Lewis coach Donte' Foster said McKesson was an excellent example for his peers in working to overcome a 2-8 season in 2010.

Prescription drug distributor McKesson Corp. has agreed to pay $13 million in civil fines to settle allegations that it failed to report as suspicious sales of large quantities of drugs, federal prosecutors in Maryland said yesterday. Under an agreement between the California-based company and U.S. attorney's offices in six states including Maryland, McKesson will also create policies beyond those required by federal regulation to detect and prevent illegal drug diversion. The Maryland claims, which account for $2 million of the fines, centered on McKesson's dealings with NewCare Pharmacy in East Baltimore and Smeeta Pharmacy in Highland.

SAN FRANCISCO - McKesson Corp., the biggest U.S. drug distributor by revenue, said yesterday that it agreed to pay $960 million to settle a shareholder lawsuit filed after a restatement in 1999 led to a one-day, $8.6 billion drop in the company's stock. The settlement is the fifth-largest in U.S. history. McKesson said the settlement will result in a reduction of $810 million, or $2.70 a share, in the company's net income for the fiscal third quarter, which ended Dec. 31. The company also said it would establish a $1.2 billion reserve for the payout and future claims stemming from 16 still-unresolved shareholder lawsuits.
