Christopher Mauck had many great football and academic years at Berean Christian School. Mauck led the Bulldogs to back-to-back undefeated Gulf Atlantic Division Championships in 2015 and 2016. His superior play in his senior year earned him First Team All-County, First Team All-SSAC and First Team on the Florida All-State Independent Elite Team.
Mauck was valedictorian of his class, and he was also honored with the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Scholar Athlete Award. He now attends the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he studies computer and electrical engineering and this summer was honored with a Google internship. On his return to MIT, he won the starting quarterback job for the Engineers.
A shoulder surgery his sophomore year caused him to miss the entire season, but as a red shirt senior, Mauck has now taken over the helm and has guided the Engineers to a 2-1 start. He plans to return and play his fifth season next year while he obtains his master’s degree.
Mauck’s brother Matthew is attending the University of Tennessee and has received a preferred walk-on opportunity next year for the Volunteers. Football runs deep in the Mauck family, as dad Michael was an All-SEC free safety for the Volunteers in the early 1970s.
