MaxPreps released it’s Top 10 All-Time High School Football Stat Leaders. It’s not hard to find one of the most high profile passing teams to ever play in the US. That team is the Kenton (Ohio) Wildcats and Coach Mike Mauk.

‘Air Mauk’ was under the control of the Ohio Hall of Fame coach, whose two sons both helped to make it work during his time at Kenton.  Mauk, who is now a head coach in Missouri, brought the ‘Air Mauk’ formula with him and it still is flying high.

Mauk’s QB sons, Maty (2008-11) and Ben (1999-2002) are listed numerous times under most of the MaxPreps passing categories. Maty is the current all-time career passing yardage leader (18,932) and his brother Ben is second (17,364). Ben is the all-time single-season yardage leader (2002-6,540), plus he is listed again with 5,770 (2001), Grant Sherman (2013) is third with 5,920 and Maty is 10th with 5,670 in 2010.

Other Kenton names are on the list as well, including Justin Sawmiller who is the leader in career (2010-2013) pass receptions with 445.  Max Morrison is  #9 on the all-time single season reception list (2010-142).

This is very impressive when you consider the number of high schools in the US, three QBs and two receivers are a part of what made ‘Air Mauk’ work.

‘Air Mauk’ is now controlled by Alex Houston, who now plays for Coach Mauk at Glendale (Missouri) and who played his Freshman season at Kenton before transferring.

Houston, who will be a Senior this season, could pass the Mauk brothers in several categories, including career passing yardage.  Houston threw for 6,131 yards last season and has almost 12,000 yards in his career as a starter.

‘Air Mauk’ will be long remembered in both Kenton and now Glendale for its accomplishments.
