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 - Playoff Fever

OC Top 5 – Performances from the weekend's prep sports action
1 Mitch Robinson & Ray Tillman (AH Avondale football) – Robinson tossed five TD passes and completed 22 of 44 attempts for 430 yards, including the game-winning 25-yd connection to Tillman (160 yards and 3 TDs) in the final moments to bring the Yellowjackets back from 13 points down in the final four minutes of play…CAN U SAY THE JOE MONTANA & JERRY RICE OF THE OC?

3 Lee Elisevich (BH Lahser soccer) – Putting together a HAT TRICK, Elisevic, a high-scoring junior forward, fueled the Knights to a 8-0 blasting of Eaton Rapids and a D2 regional championship
4 Tony Annese (RH Adams football) – Highlanders head coach Tony Partrito's nephew and best overall player accumulated over 325 yards of all-purpose offense with both his feet and his arm, delivering a personally-addressed deathblow to a very good WL Western defense, not to mention the Warriors whole season
5 Terrell Porter (Berkley football) & Valdez Showers (MH Madison football) – The OC's two most-prolific running backs both went all THEMSELVES in round 1 of the playoffs, each doing irreparable damage to their respective opponents. Showers went for 335 yards and five TDs in the Eagles comeback victory over Clawson and Porter busted out for 196 yards and one score in the Bears takedown of a Farmington
