Wasatch football, a proud tradition
Feeling of family prevails at the Wasps' football games
"He played an awesome game," she said.
Over the public address system, a voice reminded students about a Halloween dance at the school. When it was over, a joke was cracked to Tyson about remembering who he was and what he stood for. Luann made a clarification.
"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.
