SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #42 is BYU’s Masen Wake (FB).

Throughout the summer Hans & Scotty are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).


“Big punishing fullback that can play the tight end position as well,” BYU head coach Kalani Sitake said of his fullback. “Loves to jump over receivers, even though he shouldn’t be doing that but if you know anything about me, I love my fullbacks.”

BYU’s Masen Wake

Wake is a native of Cedar Hills, Utah.

Prior to his college career, the fullback was a standout player at Lone Peak High School. During his time with the Knights, Wake had consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons. As a junior, he ran for 1,142 yards and six touchdowns. A year later, Wake recorded 1,263 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. He also played linebacker at Lone Peak.

In 2019, Wake joined the BYU football program.

As a freshman, Wake ran the ball three times for eight yards. He added 14 catches for 148 yards and a touchdown in 11 games played. The following season, Wake had five carries for 15 yards and eight receptions for 114 yards. He scored three total touchdowns.

Last season, Wake ran three times for six yards.

Over the past two seasons, he helped the Cougars to a combined record of 21-4, including an 11-1 record in 2020.

In addition to playing fullback for BYU, Wake also plays at tight end.

Wake and the Cougars open their 2022 schedule on the road against the USF Bulls on September 3.
