Mayes brothers receive all-star game invitations

Van Alstyne senior offensive lineman has been selected to play in the 76th Oil Bowl Game, making him the third generation in his family to participate in the event.

His grandfather, Gene, played in the 1965 edition and his father, Allen, was in the 1983 Oil Bowl.

Mayes signed with the University of Minnesota in February.

Mayes’ younger brother, Connor, who is ranked as the top center for the Class of 2014, accepted an invite to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on January 4 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

Mayes has scholarship offers from Baylor, Colorado, Colorado State, Connecticut, Duke, Houston, Kansas, Kansas State, Minnesota, TCU, Texas Tech, Tulsa and Washington State and hopes to have a decision before the start of his senior season.
