HEBER — After burning Grantsville for so many yards and touchdowns last week, Wasatch tailback Jake Salazar could not deny he was a marked man.

He knew Morgan's chief mission would be to contain him in the backfield. When it comes to dominating games, however, Salazar showed he has more than one horse in the stable. Salazar rushed for 96 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries to go along with a sack and a pair of broken up passes to lead the Wasps past their longtime rivals 21-6 Friday night at Wasatch High.

In the span of two weeks, he has shown potential to be Region 10's next great rusher. With 343 yards and five touchdowns in two games, the senior is already evoking comparisons to ex-Park City back Jared Tew. Salazar hopes he can get opponents thinking about him like Tew did.

"Every back wants to do it," Salazar said. "Every back wants to have a breakout year."

Wastach coach Steve North said that a major difference in Salazar's game this season is that he has learned to be a more patient runner and will use his offensive line to help him get more yardage.

"He's learned how to follow blocks now," North said. "Last year, he tried to outrun everybody and it didn't work so well for him. He's another year older and wiser."

As good as his running was, Salazar's defining moment didn't come on an incredible run. Instead he made his game-changing play on special teams, blocking an extra point attempt by Trojan kicker Josh Allen late in the first quarter. The blocked kick came at the end of a four-minute scoring drive Morgan had put together. Although it was only a 7-6 game at that point, the tide seemed to turn against the Trojans from that moment in time.

"One point can determine the game, so it was great to get that (block)," Salazar said. "It was good for our team."

Another thing that was good for Wasatch was the arm of quarterback Taylor Woodruff. The Wasps were forced to pass more than they wanted to, at times, during the first half. But Woodruff, a senior, made it count.

On Wasatch's first drive, his 56-yard pass to Benjamin Gardner set up a subsequent 10-yard touchdown run by Salazar and a 7-0 lead. Then, on the Wasps third drive, Woodruff got his team to the end zone in one play - 43-yard pass down the sideline to Ethan Smith, which made it a 14-6 game.

"He can throw the ball and it helps us," North said. "It gives us (another) weapon."
