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.

Time To Breakout

 A dozen boys prep hoopsters that WILL have breakout years this season: 
Chris Milon (Sr. F Novi) – Will be one of the most athletically-gifted forwards in the area this season…expect lots of dunks and double-doubles as he teams with Samier Ozier to make up arguably the best forward combination in the whole KLAA
Anderious Gray (Sr. G Holly) – Coming off a sensational fall on the gridiron toting the rock, Gray is poised to explode on to the hardwood this season with his lightning-fast and playmaking ways
Nick Leventis (Sr G/F West Bloomfield) – Deceptive and intelligent guard/forward who is all guts and grit. His game reminds me of the old Domke bros (Matt '93, Tim '96). of previous Laker hoop fame
Adam Zavadil (Sr. G/F Birmingham Detroit Country Day) – This "Euro Dynamo" can do a little bit of everything (shoot, pass, defend) and is unbelievably fundamentally sound with his game…..he will be a major part of the 'Jackets repeat effort this winter after a prosperous summer honing his skills in his home of the Czech Republic
Dorrell Foster (F)/Caleb Hogans (G) (Juniors North Farmington) – These two JV call-ups will be expected to carry much of the scoring load for the Raiders this season and Burney knows they are both going to open some eyes doing it
Khalil Malone (Soph G Waterford Mott) – Coming off an attention-grabbing summer where he ran the point on his state title winning AAU squad like a true pro, Malone will be one of the better floor generals in the county these next few years
Jordan Dasuqui (Soph G Clarkston) – The next in a long line of super savvy C-Town backcourt gems
Devin Funchess (Jr F FH Harrison) – His future is in football, but "The Funchise" is nothing but fun to watch on the bball court with his aggressive style of banging in the post and skywalking talents attacking the rim on the wing
Parker Millington (Sr F Milford) – This lanky scrap master had a superb summer on the AAU/showcase camp circuit and will be a player to watch for the Mavs this winter
Justin Barrows/Danny Furlong (Junior Forwards OL St. Mary's) – Barrows, a transfer from Oakland Christian and Furlong, the younger brother of former OLSM sniper extraordinaire Mike Furlong, will both enter the mix for the Eaglets this season and provide them with some much-needed scoring punch
Anthony Rice (Sr G Ferndale) – Looked ultra-steady coming off the bench running the point last season and will enter the starting lineup this year as an integral cog in the Eagles attack
Earl Swift (Soph F Southfield) – This rangy and athletic wing player will make an immediate impact after spending this summer schooling the comp on the team camp circuit

How could you leave Kyle Cooper from Catholic Central off your list?
