Broken Bow topped Valentine 20-0 Friday night to move to 2-2 on the season while Valentine falls to 1-3. The Indians got touchdown runs from Grayson Minnick (41 yards), Zac Jones (one yard) and Jeremy Christner (five yards). The Indians defense kept the Badgers out of the end zone after turnovers twice facing a short field. Broken Bow turned the ball over four times, but forced two interceptions of their own.

Aniah Preston is like most 12-year-old boys. He loves sports - especially football - likes hanging out with his friends, and isnâ€™t overly fond of school. But unlike the other boys in his 6th grade class, Aniahâ€™s days also consist of lots of medications, routine blood pressure checks, and frequent trips to a myriad of doctors, in an attempt to manage the rare disease he was born with.
Itâ€™s called Kearnes-Sayre Syndrome, and according to Aniahâ€™s mom, Amy Kulhanek, less that 250 people worldwide have been diagnosed with the disorder.
