Former Penn Hills Star WR Dante Cephas Career-High Performance For Kent State



A former WPIAL star turned in one of the best performances throughout all of college football this past weekend.

Former Penn Hills and current Kent State wide receiver Dante Cephas was virtually uncoverable in leading Kent State to a 48-38 win over Buffalo. For the game, Cephas had 13 receptions for 186 yards and 3 TD’s.

This career-best performance for Cephas combined with the play of his senior quarterback Dustin Crum, who was 22 of 36 for 407 yards and 3 passing touchdowns. Crum also accounted for 72 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground.

The speedy sophomore scored his first touchdown of the day on a 41-yard streak pass. The other two touchdowns were important ones for Kent State. Trailing 38-34, Crum connected with Cephas on a 5-yard slant to give them a lead and they never trailed again. The lead increased to 48-38 when the duo connected again on a 40-yard slant pattern.

For the season, Cephas has collected 36 receptions for 484 yards and 4 touchdowns. As a freshman, he caught 11 passes for 136 yards and 0 touchdowns.
