10/02/12 - Colorado star defensive lineman Will Pericak faces two opponents every Saturday: the opposing quarterback and diabetes. After every other series, he goes to the sideline for finger pricks to test his blood sugars. High-fructose energy drinks are on hand if he needs them. Pericak (pronounced PRE-check) was diagnosed at 15 when he was a freshman at Boulder High School, but his older brother was diagnosed much younger, ''so I kind of grew up with it throughout my youth, so I kind of knew what it was all about.'' Like many diabetics, Pericak, a senior who packs 285 pounds on his 6-foot-4 frame, uses a proper balance of diet, medication and exercise to control his disease, which he has come to view as more a blessing than a curse. ''Absolutely. I know it's definitely a challenge for me. But then again I'm more healthy because of it,'' Pericak said. ''It is a disease and it definitely has pros and cons, the pro being I know what I'm eating, I watch what I'm eating. I'm able to understand my body better. And that ends up helping me be able to play my best. If I get low in a game, it may cost us a huge play or something like that.'' Pericak said he's in better tune with his mind and body and more mindful of nutrition because of diabetes and the necessity to maintain proper blood sugar levels. - AP Sports
