Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Foot Steps of Legends - Part II

1. Matt Kamianiecki jr. Clarkston bball/baseballl - son of former major league baseball player Scott Kamainiecki (NyYankes/Baltimore Orioles). Matt is a quality baseball player no doubt, but it looks like his future is in hoops. A sturdy 6-7, Matt can play inside and out and his getting recruited by several D1 programs. Like his pops, is very cerebral on the field of battle.

2. Michael Curry, Jr. jr. Rochester Hills Adams bball - son of Detroit Pistons head coach and former NBA journeyman, Michael Curry. Michael displays his dad's trademark feistiness and gets up and down the court with as much reckless abandon than anyone in the county. A top notch high school hoopster, who may be limited at the next level due to his lack of size.

3. Roy Marble, Jr. jr. Southfield-Lathrup bball - Roy Jr. is one of the true hidden gems of the 2010 recruiting class. Just like his father, Roy Sr. - a all-big ten player at Iowa in the late-80's and NBA first round draft pick of the Atlanta Hawks - he has a knack for the bucket, utilizing a tantalizing array of offensive moves. An owner of one of the sweetest strokes in the state, Marble will be a huge sleeper for whatever college coach grabs him.

4. Tom Staton, Jr. sr. Clarkston bball - son of Tom Staton Sr., local high school legend when he played at Ferndale and captain of a early-1970's UofM team. With a slim but strong 6-5, Tom is a great athlete, who anchors the much-va unted Clarkston Wolves backcourt. A one time small forward, he has adapted well to his move to the point guard slot this season - proving to college coaches his durability and unselfishness. One of the more underrated hoopsters in the state.
