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.

Dreaming of Friday Night Lights

The start of prep football practice is only a day away and Burney is bursting with excitement and anticipation. Here are a few things that Burney is sure to be dreaming about next few weeks in preparation for the start of the season which is less than 3 weeks away:

Southfield's Dae'von Robinson churning his way for his prototypical Barry Sanders-esque TD runs

CC captains Justin D'agostino, Andrew "Pac Man" Nelson, Brandon Tammaro and the like, imparting that state championship wisdom on the new starting shamrocks in their midst

Alex Fine (Lake Orion) doing his best Louis Delmas impression all season long!

First- year head coach Ron Bellamy at West Bloomfield leading the Lakers back to the playoffs in his first year at the helm

second-year sideline general Mario Evans at Oak Park leading the Knights back to the playoffs and doing it in resounding fashion.....Burney says the Knights will be the Pontiac Phoenix of 2011!!1 take it to the bank!

Farmington making a long run in the playoffs...and I'm talking real long!
