EDMOND — Cameron Westbrook sees Justice Hansen every day up close.

The Edmond Santa Fe running back sees what Hansen does with his arm and his feet week-in and week-out.

So it is not surprising that Westbrook was impressed with Hansen's performance Thursday night as the Wolves beat Southmoore 53-37 at Wantland Stadium.

“He's amazing,” Westbrook said. “It's starting to get a little old, though, because he's just that good of a player. But he keeps getting more and more impressive.”

Hansen threw for 272 yards and five touchdowns and ran for 103 yards and two more scores.

His biggest came early in the third quarter, after Southmoore had come from a 20-0 deficit to take the lead.

Hansen responded by taking control, carrying on the final four plays of Santa Fe's next drive, finishing it off with a 13-yard touchdown run to give the Wolves the lead for good.

Last season, Santa Fe lost to Midwest City in its final nondistrict game before picking up a big district-opening win against Westmoore. That sparked an eight-game winning streak that lasted into the Class 6A playoffs.

This year, Santa Fe was looking for another bounce-back win after falling to Edmond North, 26-13.

“It's just the way Coach (Lance) Manning got us back out working after last week, and it was the same thing last year,” Westbrook said. “We had a hard week of practice and it showed.”

It looked like Santa Fe would cruise early before Southmoore adjusted. The SaberCats came back with four consecutive touchdowns.
