Feeling of family prevails at the Wasps' football games
"He played an awesome game," she said.

"At our house the saying goes, 'Remember who you are and keep your pants zipped up.'"
Epilogue: The following Friday, Nov. 5, Wasatch hosted Judge Memorial. The Wasps trailed 28-7 early, but made a late rally. With 1.7 seconds on the clock, Tyler Purdy sprinted out to his right and completed a 36-yard Hail Mary to Keefer Babbitt in the corner of the end zone to incredibly pull the Wasps to within a point, pending the PAT. But agonizingly for kicker Jason Larson and the team, the kick sailed wide right. The Bulldogs won, 35-34, ending the Wasps' season.
Despite the heartbreaking loss and tears, given the proud tradition and community support, the fight song will be playing loud when Larson redeems himself in 2011.
