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.

Crystal Ball

As touched on yesterday, Burney is going through major league withdrawal symptoms as a result of being deprived of prep sports for the next two months. In order to cope, Burney said goodbye to some of the great high school athletes that are leaving us this year in his last blog entry. Today, Burney dusts off his old crystal ball and foresees the future of the 2010-2011 prep sports season.
