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.

Instant Feedback - Inside The Dragons Den

The Lake Orion Dragons had so many big time performances in their exhilarating 24-21 defeat of Detroit Cass Tech in the D1 football final four on Saturday afternoon, one could almost lose count. Luckily for you prep gridiron fans, Burney didn't.
Here's a quick look at the best of the best:
Andrew Shafkalis – The Dragons tenacious junior linebacker continued his fantastic play this postseason by causing the game-clinching fumble in the closing seconds .....COULD THIS KID BE ANY MORE CLUTCH THE PAST TWO WEEKS?
Tyler Misiak – LO's ace defensive back proved timely as always by recovering the fumble Shafkalis caused and officially halting the Technicians last gasp drive deep into Dragons territory...My boy Misiak makes things MISERABLE for all who gets anywhere in his vicinity on the way to the ball
Cole Schanenzer – Schaenzer's play under center could wind up being the story of the playoffs if Lake Orion wins the state title. Reason being he hadn't played quarterback all season long until starting signal caller Sean Charrette got injured last week. The senior two-sport standout – he's an all-conference baseball player in the spring – made the switch from wide receiver and the Dragons haven't missed a beat. On Saturday, he completed 5-11 pass attempts for 132 yards and one TD.
Marques Stevenson – Cass Tech just couldn't handle Stevenson's herculean effort on Saturday as the senior tailback did his usual Marcus Allen impression by toting the rock 25 times for 190 yards and two touchdowns; In a nutshell, Marques Stevenson went all MARQUES STEVENSON and all is good in Dragonland for another week!!!
