Springfield Glendale head football coach Mike Mauk, father of current Mizzou football quarterback Maty Mauk, has been diagnosed with Colorectal Cancer. Mauk, who will be entering his second year as head coach of the Falcons, says he will undergo chemotherapy and radiation treatment beginning next month.
Mauk plans to continue coaching while getting treatment. His team has upcoming trips to Springdale, Arkansas and Hoover, Alabama, for 7-on-7 weekend tournaments.
Mauk put together a Hall of Fame career coaching in Ohio, before moving to Springfield. Last season they went 2-8 with wins over Rolla and Kickapoo. The Falcons lost in their first district tournament game to Republic 62-30.
The Falcons first game this season is August 21st against Joplin.
