(10-9-17) Glendale (Missouri) Senior Quarterback Alex Huston is close to breaking national records, including his coach’s son Maty Mauk. Huston also has added a few Missouri high schools records to his ledger.
Huston played his Freshman season at Kenton (Ohio) and was limited to mop-up duty. The season before Mauk, the Ohio Hall of Fame Coach, left Kenton to move to Missouri, where his son Maty was the QB. Mauk ended up taking the head coaching job at Glendale, a school that had struggled in football in the past several years.
So why did Huston leave Kenton? After Mauk’s first season, Huston would decide to leave Kenton and move to Glendale and play for Mauk and the Falcons. Mauk’s wide-open offense was suited for Huston and the stats now show that it was a good move for both and the wins started to come for the Falcons.
Huston, knew that he would be stuck behind Trent Hites, who was a year ahead of him in school and most likely the Wildcats QB for at least two more years.
Hites would go on to have a nice career with over 10, 000 total yards of total offense. Over the years Kenton has been known for producing QB, after QB during Mauk’s time and remember Huston started out as a Wildcat..
Huston’s only season at Kenton, was what you might expect out of a Freshman QB on a high-flying team like Kenton.
Huston as a Wildcat played in four games of the 14 they played in 2014, including one playoff game, he scored his only TD against Shawnee on a 5 yard run.
His stats for that year, he was 4 for 14 and 35 total yards passing and he carried the ball 7 times for 8 yards.
The Wildcats went 8-1 and finished second in the WBL in 2014, they went 11-3 on the season and lost to Alter 25-22 in the State D IV state semifinals.
So now that he is getting near to the end of his career, the record-keepers need to remember these 2014 Wildcat numbers. He may graduate a Falcon, but he started out a Wildcat.
