The Kenton QB Who Stayed Home - Trent Hites

(10-7-16) When you look back at the history of football in Kenton you think of the wide-open play of Mike Mauk and his Wildcats. The key to those high scoring machines were QB's, including his two sons, Ben and Maty, plus Grant Sherman.

Younger of the two Mauk brothers, Maty, set five national high school football records during his career. The records included national career passing yards (18,932), national career touchdown passes (219), national career passing attempts (2,110), national career pass completions (1,353) and national career total yards from scrimmage (22,681).

The tradition continues today with Head Coach Brent Fackler, thanks to his Senior QB Trent Hites, the first post-Mauk QB to put up big numbers for Kenton. Hites was so good that QB Alex Houston (who is now a Junior) decided to pack his bags after his Freshman year at Kenton to move to Missouri to play for Mike Mauk at Glendale. Houston is being tutored by Mauk's older son Ben and it's paying off for him, he is receiving national coverage (especially on MaxPreps) on the huge numbers he has been posting the past two seasons.

Hites, who decided to remain a Wildcat, has been solid over his career. including Kenton's 2014 run in the football playoffs. Kenton lost to Alter 25-22 in the Division IV State Semifinals. Hites who was a just a sophomore, was 23 of 62 for 330 yards, with 2 TDS in the loss.

Hites is having a big Senior season, with four games remaining he has already thrown for 1,759 yards and 19 TDs and if he continues at this current pace he will be near 9,000 yards for his career.

Hites career may end without a chance of making the playoffs, Kenton is currently 16th in D IV Region 14 (Top 8 qualify), they play O-G tonight in a WBL match-up. The Titans enter the game in the fourth position in the same region, a win tonight is a must. Kenton will end the season with WBL games with Elida, at Bath and Celina, winning out looks to be the key to moving on and possible more passing yards for Hites.
