Sexton QB Mike Lynn III Transfers To Lansing Catholic
Lansing Catholic didn't have to wait long to find its quarterback heir apparent to Tony Poljan.
Sexton QB Mike Lynn III has transferred to the Cougars, according to the Lansing State Journal. Lynn, who will be a junior next season, told the LSJ his family having recently moved and Catholic coach Jim Ahern's resume of having helped quarterbacks--like Poljan and current Central Michigan starter Cooper Rush--get to the Division 1 ranks at the next level both factored into the decision, as well as academics:
Lynn, whose family recently moved, said the switch to Lansing Catholic suits him far beyond the football field.
“Coach Ahern was a huge factor in the football aspect, but football wasn’t the only reason I wanted to go there,” Lynn said. “It’s a great school. It’s one of the top schools in Michigan.
“I know definitely coming to LCC that I’m going to be very prepared in the next two years when it’s time to head off to college. That ‘s really important to me. I don’t want to be at the end of my senior year and not prepared to head off to whatever college I’m going to.”
Lynn completed 95 of 181 passes in 2015 for a 52.5 percent completion rate, 1,815 yards and 18 touchdowns. He led Sexton to a 2-7 record--all seven of the Big Reds' losses were by one score or less, and they lost four games by two points or less.
