Former Cincinnati quarterback Ben Mauk is taking his case for another year of college football before a judge in the northwest Ohio town where his playing career started.
At a hearing in Kenton, Mauk was on the witness stand Thursday testifying about a long history of foot problems that began before his freshman year at Kenton High School. His lawyers say those foot issues lingered, making Mauk unable to play his first season at Wake Forest. He later transferred to the University of Cincinnati.
Mauk wants to play one more season with the Bearcats but has been turned down five times by the NCAA, most recently Wednesday.
His attorneys have requested a permanent injunction and are arguing that he should be granted a sixth year of college football eligibility.
