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.

Five For Fighting - Fearsome Firecrackers

In honor of the July 4th Holiday and all the many firecracker explosions that are sure to be lighting up the nighttime sky this evening, I thought I'd bust out my Top 5 most explosive prep athletes in THA OC heading into the 2010-2011 school year.
OC Top 5 – Most Explosive Athletes for the 2010-2011 prep sports campaign
1          Lauren Robak (WOLL hoops) – the nickname, Mrs. Fourth Quarter, says it all! Oh, yeah, that state title ring does quite a bit of talking itself
2          Carlton Brundidge (Southfield hoops) – Hardest Working Man In Michigan Prep BBall!
3          Shawn Conway (Birmingham Seaholm football and bball)/Valdez Showers (MH Madison football) – these two guys DEFINE the word EXPLOSIVE: Conway is the best WR in the county, the best slam dunker in the county, a virtual walking double-double in the hardwood and Showers is the best RB in the county, the top rated college prospect in the county and just a plain old human stick of dynamite whenever he has the ball in his hands
4          Greg Fettes (MH Lamphere baseball) – Pure power whether behind the plate catching or at the plate sending "G-Bombs" into the cheap seats!
5          James Ross (OLSM football) – This kid hits so hard from his linebacker position with the Eaglets that in the offseason he roams our nations highways impersonating a MACK TRUCK!
