Celina 4th Round Bound

The Celina Bobcats Have steamrolled their way through the Class 4A playoffs and now the 11-2 Bobcats find themselves playing in the regional finals.

"It feels great, you know last year we had kind of a bad season. We were home the first week of the playoffs and we lost the first week, and we weren't playing this far. It feels great to play in the fourth round, because I've never played in the fourth round," said quarterback Nathan Elliott.

The Bobcats knocked off Iowa Park by a score of 57-26 last week and will now take on the the 13-0 Sweetwater Mustangs this Friday in Wichita falls.

"Got a lot of speed, tremendous speed on offense and on defense and they fly to ball. They're undefeated and it's going to be a great game," said lineman Carlos Becerra.

"The big thing is for our offense to be able to execute, for our defense to go out and cover and get pressure on the quarterback. The quarterback throws the ball real well so we need to get after him and get in his face a little bit. And we just need our kids to come out and play with a great effort," said Celina coach Bill Elliott.

The man under center for the Bobcats is head coach Bill Elliott's son Nathan, and this year has been a great experience for both father and son.

"It's awesome to do it with my dad, I get to see him every day, we basically are colleagues. We work together, so it's a lot of fun. I couldn't have asked for a better four years of high school than what I've had," said Nathan Elliott.

The elder Elliott agrees.
