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.

Ford Field Fantasies

Let me first start by saying HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all you prep fiends and not to worry because your ultimate fix is coming in just two days,  when two of the best football squads the OC has to offer – CC and OL St. Mary's – take the field this Saturday to battle for state championships in downtown Detroit.
Burney just had a hella good Thanksgiving feast – his favorite meal of the entire calendar year – and then dosed off for a bit. While in my belly-stuffed slumber, I had dreams of Ford Field.
And for reading pleasure, I have decided that I will share a few with you guyz – I think you're going to like them!
"The Nasty Boys", my new nickname for the fierce and ferocious defensive trio of St. Mary's underclassmen, Marcus "The Sack Man" Gleaves, James "Doomsday" Ross, and Cortez "The Terminator" Riley, going ballistic all over the EGU backfield.
The Eaglets Ernest Thomas being, well…Ernest Thomas.
OLSM senior signal caller Robert Bolden getting buck like Michael Redd on the EGU defense.
My main homeboy, Niko "Biggie" Palazeti, doing his best Jerome Bettis impression and bruising and barreling his way to a school finals record of 210 yards (breaking former Shamrocks' super stud Derek Brooks' 204 yard record from the 2002 state championship game.)
CC defensive back Andrew Nelson (game-clinching 4th down deflection in the end zone in OT against Canton in quarters) making another huge defensive play down the stretch – this time against Stevenson and all-everything QB Jason Fracassa. Can you say PICK SIX!
Nelson's running buddy in the Shamrocks defensive backfield, Jon Savakus, collecting a pair of interceptions of Jason Fracassa passes himself.
Here's to all you OC state finalists turning Burney's fantasies of Ford Field fun into a reality!
