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 - Shooting Stars

OC Top 5 – Fastest-Rising Stars
1          Matt Godin      Jr.        Novi Detroit CC (Football)                 
            This Shamrock lineman prospect is a one of a kind talent!  Expect BIG THINGS from this big fella in the trenches for the Mach Express the next two years
2          Conor Hart      Sr.        Birmingham Brother Rice (Football)
            Hailing from a rich lineage of gridiron greatness, Hart is an athletic and sure-handed tight end primed for a breakout senior year with the Warriors
3 a.      Tony Harris     Sr.        Auburn Hills Avondale (Football/Basketball)
            Don't sleep on this double-sport gamer (smooth as silk point guard for the 'Jackets in the winter and shifty wide          receiver/defensive back combo in the fall)that I've decided to  nickname "The Truth" because he has been living at the corner of AWESOME and AMAZING all offseason long….can you say an AAU tourney high 33 points this past week in Swartz Creek.
3 b.      Josh Fugate     Sr.        Holly (Basketball)
            The Bronchos brand new captain, floor general and No.1 scoring option is absolutely ON FIRE this summer!
4          Tariq Akeel      Jr.        Birmingham Detroit Country Day (Boys Soccer)
            Stayed in the shadows a bit last season as a super soph until late for the defending state champion, Yellow Jackets, but this sleek and light-footed midfielder will no doubt take center stage this fall in the team's quest for a repeat
5          Aaron Burbridge Jr.    Farmington Hills Harrison (Football)
            The next in a long line of excellent Hawks split ends ready to keep building on what was an outstanding rookie varsity campaign as a sophomore in 2009 – 44 catches, 762 yards and 8 TDs
