Mayer helped the Colonels capture the Kentucky state championships in both football and basketball in the same school year. That feat has been accomplished only two other times.
With Mayer at quarterback, the Colonels had one of the most dominating seasons in Northern Kentucky history, going a 15-0 with game point differentials so large that the Colonels went to a running clock in all 12 games against Kentucky competition.
Mayer finished with a school-record 7,602 passing yards and 77 touchdowns. His 3,114 passing yards and 40 passing TDs last season set single-season school records.
In basketball, Mayer helped lead the Colonels to a 35-4 record. He scored 12 points and had a team-high eight rebounds in the state championship win over Scott County.
