Missouri’s Maty Mauk embraces challenge of first college start

Missouri redshirt freshman Maty Mauk’s last start was in front of 10,000 fans at the 2011 Ohio High School Athletic Association Division IV state final, nothing like the crucible he’ll be thrown into Saturday when the 14th-ranked Missouri Tigers, 6-0, face No. 22 Florida, 4-2. “He’s anxious and aware of the ramifications of the game. But at the same time, if you’re a competitor, you should be excited about that and that’s where he is,” said Mauk’s father, Mark.
