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.

Footsteps of Legends Walk In Oakland County Prep Scene - Part One

The other day I was thinking about many kids in the county prep scene spawn for great athlete parents. I thought of quite and few. Here's a little breakdown:

Jordan Dumars sr. bball player at Birmingham Detroit Country Day - son of Detroit Piston Hall of Fame guard and organization current general manager, Joe Dumars. Father and son both have dead eye range. Watch out for Jordan playing for South Florida in DI next year

Aly Joubert soph bball player at Farmington Hills Harrison - daughter of former UofM guard and Detroit Southwestern great, Antoine "The Judge" Joubert, one of the most dominant prepsters of the late 20th Century and current men's head coach for Oakland Community College. Aly follows in her father's footsteps and has a sweet touch.

Jessie Haji-Shiek jr bball/football plater at Bloomfield Hills Lahser - son of former super bowl-winning placekicker Ali Haji-Shiek of the New York Giants and UofM Wolverines. Jessie was a kicker and wide receiver on the 2008 state semi-finalist Knights football team and is guard on the hoops squad. Ali helps coach the Lahser football team.

Alan Hardy, Jr. sr. bball player Bloomfield Hills Lahser - son of Alan Hardy.Sr, the former UofM basketball player who was a member of the Wolverines final four team in 1976. A wiry big man with a great hops just like his old man was, Hardy is a force to be reckoned with on the hardwood.

Hallie Wangler. soph. bball player Royal Oak Shrine - daughter of former UofM Rose Bowl winning QB John Wangler, a prep legend himself in the area. Playing for her pop's alma mater, Hallie is a stand out on the basketball floor.
