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 - M.I.P

OC Top 5 – Most Improved Boys Basketball Player
1 Jonathon Williams (Southfield-Lathrup) – The kid people call "Jon Jon" is the sole reason the Chargers have a chance to contend in the OAA Red this season. Williams, a sophomore, has quickly established himself as one of the top lead guards in the county by averaging 23 points, five assists and four steals per game
2 Christian Pino (Birmingham Seaholm) – The Maples junior floor general is a bona fide star now, adding a more accurate outside shot and finishing ability at the rack to his game over the summer.
3 Adam Zavadil (Birmingham DCD) – Could be the most fundamentally sound player in the area. He has developed a nearly unstoppable pull-up jumper and added three inches and 20 pounds to his frame, since last season when he was a role player on the 'Jackets state title squad. As a result, he has catapulted himself to the team's No. 2 leading scorer.

4 (tie)Jordan Guinn-Anthony Rice (Ferndale) - this suddenly electrifying tandem has the Eagles as frontrunners in the OAA White, after losing the majority of their OAA Blue title squad from last winter

4 (tie) Corey Lucas (OL St. Mary's)
– The Eaglet's football star has come out of nowhere to become a top scoring threat on the hardwood, whether attacking the basket or bombing away from the outside. Shouldn't really be that surprising though, being that's he's Kalin Lucas' first cousin and all.
5 Nick Stoll (Holly) – This Bronchos big fella gives head coach Lance Baylis a tough as nails presence in the post. Stoll has done a great job replacing two-time all-league forward Lance Hopkin as the team's "go-to guy" on the block.
