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 - Elite Eight Outings

OC Top 5 – Gridiron Performances From Regional Final Weekend
1 Tommy Vento (SR QB FH Harrison) – Carved up the De La Salle defense for a school-record 344 yards and two touchdowns in the Hawks 33-23 win. TV has officially eclipsed SWAGGER LEVEL ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND TRILLION!
2 Grant Niemiec (SOPH RB OL St. Mary's) – Continued displaying his punishing rushing skills by tearing up the Redford Thurston 'D for 174 yards and three TDs on only 14 carries. GRANT IS GRRRRRRRREAT! I like Niemiec because he's not your typical OLSM back. Unlike most former standout Eaglets rock toters who were slick-footed and speedy, Niemiec is old school all the way and bangs it between the tackles "CC style"
3 The WHOLE WL CENTRAL TEAM All Burney can say is WOW in regards to the Vikes 39-13 trouncing of Fenton on Friday night. I love me some Coach Meyer and the Central gridiron squad this year. They just hit teams in the mouth and say WHAT? TRUE GRIT!
4 Andrew Shafkalis (JR LB Lake Orion) – This kid was all over the field making noise, all up in Utica Ike's face all night long and all about SHUT DOWN MODE on Friday night, leading  the Dragons stout defense in a LO 17-10 win
5 Aaron Burbridge (JR WR/RB/DB FH Harrison) – Is there anything this guy doesn't do and do REALLY REALLY WELL. Coach Herrington plays Burbridge at running back for the first time on Saturday and he responds with a 30-yard TD run to go with his customary 100 yards and 1 TD (23 yarder) receiving.
