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.

Balling Across The USA

Burney's OC All-American Men's Hoops Squad
G Kalin Lucas (OL St. Mary's/Michigan State) – Arguably the best point guard in the nation, so I suppose he's good enough to run the point for my squad of OC'ers
G Ray McCallum, Jr. (Birmingham DCD/UofD-Mercy) – All I can say is: WATCH OUT for this phenom, who I'm saying will dominate the Horizon League this season as a true frosh…anybody who knows Burney knows he likes to lather himself up in some of that rich and buttery RMJ cornbread and they'll be plenty to go around very soon over in TITAN LAND!
G/F Tim Williams (Pontiac Northern/South Alabama) – PURE SCORER and great athlete who is running things for the Jags down in 'Bama, leading the team in scoring and getting selected all-conference last year as a junior. Oh, yeah, Williams is a PURE WINNER TOO, guiding the Northern Huskies to three district titles and a pair of regionals in his three years on varsity as a prepster
F Austin Calhoun (Southfield/Bowling Green) – Has been quietly getting his footing at the college ranks after a stellar prep career where he averaged over 16 points and 10 rebounds for two straight years as a Blue Jay. Expect for Calhoun to have a breakout year this season for the BG BALLERS!
C Keith Benson (Birmingham DCD/Oakland) – Much better college hoopster than he was a high school player, really coming into his own these past couple of seasons under coach Kampe's mentorship with the Golden Grizz. CAN U SAY FUTURE NBA FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK?
Sixth Man – Darnell Brown (Birmingham DCD/Bowling Green) – By the end of the 2010-2011 campaign, Brown will be one of the best lead guards in the MAC
Seventh Man – Dave Curletti (OL St. Mary's/Northwestern) – My "Lunch Pail specialist" who will come off the bench and give me those "grind minutes" every team needs for success     
Head Coach – Dane Fife (Clarkston/IUPUI-FW) – Was there really any other choice?
Asst – Brett Reed (AH Oakland Christian/Lehigh) – Pretty amazing that the OC is home to not one, but TWO of the brightest young minds in the nation's head coaching fraternity (It really shouldn't be that surprising since both Fife and Reed were taught by two of the best boys bball coaches in county history in Dan Fife at Clarkston and Ed Mehlberg at OCS)
