Mathew Richard Mauk (born June 13, 1993) is an American football quarterback who is currently a free agent. He played college football for the Eastern Kentucky Colonels. He previously played for the Missouri Tigers. He is the younger brother of former professional quarterback Ben Mauk.[1]

Early yearsEdit

Mauk, the son of Mike and Gwyn Mauk, was born and raised in Kenton, Ohio.[1] Mauk attended Kenton High School where he was coached by his father.[2][3] As a senior, Mauk led Kenton to the state championship game where he lost to the Norwayne High School Bobcats of Creston, Ohio.[3] He was named Ohio's Mr. Football and was named an All-American by Sports Illustrated and Parade Magazine.[2][4][5]

Mauk holds national high school career records for passing completions (1,353), passing attempts (2,110), passing yards (18,932), and total yards (22,681). Mauk held the passing touchdowns record with 219 but was surpassed by Jake Browning in 2014 (229).[2][3][6] The records for completions, attempts, passing yards, and total yards were previously held by his older brother, Ben Mauk,[3] who was a college football standout for the Cincinnati Bearcats.[1] In addition to football, Maty Mauk was a high school All-District selection in basketball and qualified for the Ohio state track meet in four different events.[1]

College careerEdit

In addition to Missouri, Mauk received scholarship offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Vanderbilt, among others.[7]

2012 seasonEdit

Mauk was redshirted during his first season and did not play in any games.

2013 seasonEdit

Throughout the offseason, Mauk competed for the Tigers' starting quarterback job but was ultimately named the backup to returning starter James Franklin.[8]

Mauk played sparingly to begin the 2013 season until Franklin left the Tigers' game against Georgia with a shoulder injury.[9] Mauk entered the game with Missouri leading 28–26 in the fourth quarter and ultimately helped lead them to a 41–26 victory.[9]

Mauk made his first career start in place of the injured Franklin the following week against Florida, leading the Tigers to a 36–17 victory and earning Southeastern Conference Freshman Player of the Week honors.[10][11] He earned the honor again on November 4 after leading Mizzou to a 31–3 win over Tennessee. Mauk passed for three touchdowns and ran for another in the Tigers' victory.[12]

2014 seasonEdit

Mauk and the Tigers passing game came into 2014 with considerable hype, despite the loss of the previous year's three leading receivers. And through three games, that hype seemed to be coming to fruition, but problems arose in a close win over South Carolina and came to a climax a week later in an abysmal shutout at the hands of Georgia where Mauk completed just 9 of 21 pass attempts for 97 yards and four interceptions. Following the Georgia game Mauk and the Tigers rebounded and finished 11-3 winning the SEC East for the second consecutive year.

Legal issuesEdit

In late August 2013, Mauk was arrested on suspicion of four traffic-related offenses. According to University of Missouri campus police, they suspected Mauk struck two parked vehicles while riding his motor scooter in the early morning hours of August 29. He and two female passengers fled the scene, refused to pull over for authorities, and ran a stop sign. Later that morning he turned himself into the police and was charged with four misdemeanors, which were eventually all dropped once security cameras showed that he in fact did not hit any parked cars. He was arrested and taken to the Boone County Jail. He was released that same afternoon, after posting $1,000 bond.[13]

On January 26, 2016 Mauk was indefinitely suspended from the Missouri football team after an old video surfaced of him snorting a white substance; he was dismissed from the program on January 28, 2016.[14] Mauk then transferred to Eastern Kentucky for the 2016 season.

Professional career Edit

In 2017, Mauk signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders to compete for the starting spot with former NFL quarterback Vince Young.[15] He was cut from the team after two days of practice due to a shoulder injury.[16]

Mauk coached on the sidelines of a Glendale High School football game, where his father is head coach and his brother Ben Mauk is an assistant, in August and was credited with assisting the school's quarterback in throwing 8 touchdowns in the game.[17] Head coach Mike Mauk stated that Maty would be joining the coaching staff as an assistant.[18]
