D'Anton Lynn's undefeated Celina Bobcat squad (13-0) had a big night on Friday, with a 50-23 win over the Pittsburg Pirates (8-5), as the Bobcats rolled up 618 yards.

Penn State Class of 2008 member D'Anton Lynn had an impressive evening for Celina, seeing action on both sides of the ball. Offensively, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound standout had one carry for seven yards and pulled in two passes for 23 yards.

However, Lynn's biggest play came in Celina's defensive backfield. Late in the first half, Celina was in a dogfight, leading 14-7 as Pittsburgh got the ball back. However, on the opening play of the Pirates' drive, Lynn have a game-changing play, making a read to pick off a tipped Kendall Wright pass. Lynn showed his athleticism, returning the interception 47 yards for a score to give Celina a 21-7 lead as the close of the second quarter approached.

On the year Celina is a stellar 13-0. The Bobcats advance to the state quarterfinals next week where they will face the winner of Texarkana Pleasant Grove and Glen Rose clash on Saturday.

Rated Scout's No. 17 defensive back prospect nationally, Lynn is a four-star prospect who committed to Penn State on November 10. Although he has seen playing time at QB, RB, WR and LB at Celina, he is projected to play DB at the collegiate level.
