Is there a way to select a layer?

Hello,

So my code looks for a layer name called flow then proceeds to attempt to zoom to that layer.

The problem i have right now is i cant figure out how to select the layer which i know is being correctly identified in my If statements so that I can zoom to it.

 
for lyr in layerlist:
# if the long layer name does not equal the short layer name
                                              
 if lyr.longName != lyr.name:
     #Find Layer with name == "flow"

     if lyr.name.lower() == "flow":

  #Pan to Extent of Flow Layer
                 df.extent = lyr.getExtent()
                 print extent
                 print lyr.name.lower()
