SPoR; s By Sandy Anderberg One dream was dashed, but the Broncos' dream of a play off appear- ance is very much alive for the 2007 football team. The Broncos will take on the Nazareth Swifts in the first round of the playoffs on Thursday, November 15, at 7:00 p.m. in Amarillo at Dick Bivins Stadium. The Broncos took on Quanah Friday night and were playing for the District Championship. Despite playing hard, the Broncos fell 13-28 to the Indians. "Quanah has a good team," head coach Gary Jack said. "Early on it looked like we were going to tear them up. We pounded them pretty hard at first; but as the game went on, we had trouble containing their running back." The Broncos got on the board first when Alton Gaines scored on a three-yard run. After Quanah tied it up, the Broncos scored again on an 18-yard strike from Nathan Gribble to T.J. Brown. Defensively, the Broncos once again racked up good numbers. "Johny Ballard, Johnny Gaines, and Danzel Wilson finished with 11 tackles," Jack said. "Alton Gaines, Derrick Shelton, and Steve Fowler had 10 tackles. Steve also had a quarterback sack. T.J. Brown had six tackles, and Stephino McCamp- bell finished with five. Dylan Wright came up with four tackles and one blocked extra point." Jack felt at least two penalties changed the momentum of the game to the favor of the Indians. "We were penalized incorrectly for a couple of flags they threw" Jack said. "It caused a big momen- tum swing in Quanah's favor." The Indians scored one more time with only approximately three minutes left in the game. "We moved it up and down the field," Jack said. "We played a solid game; it could have swung either way." In spite of the loss, the Broncos are ready, to take it to the next step and get a victory over Nazareth. "We'll use this week to prepare for Nazareth;' Jack said. "It's a new game, and it is exciting to get the chance .to win the first play off game in about 26 years. We clenched the play off spot before week 10, so we are very proud of the effort from the team. I like our chances against Nazareth; it will be a good game. We are playing well, and we'll take the week to get back on track." Make the short drive to Ama- rillo on Thursday to cheer for the Broncos as they defeat the Swifts and move deeper into the play off race. Glenn Weatherton runs the ball for the Broncos in Quanah last Friday night.

A report by Medeo Health Solutions at the end of October indicates that the use of cholesterol-lowering drugs between 2001 and 2006 in people aged 20 to 44 grew by more than 65%. Surprisingly, this was much higher than the increase for the same period for Americans 65 and older, which grew by 52%. Some heart specialists are encour- aged by these numbers, which to them indicates that primary care phy- sicians are being more aggressive in preventative therapy for younger adults. Health experts also indicate that currently there are higher rates of obesity, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol problems in young adults than in several previous years. Commonly used cholesterol lowering drugs include the statins (examples include Zocor, Lescol, and Crestor), resins such as Questran, fibrates such as Tricor, and drugs that prevent the intestinal absorption of cholesterol such as Zetia. well. too."
