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.

Last season's all-state QB, Tommy Vento, Jake's big brother, will be at MSU next year as a preferred me, after Cousins graduates, scholarship or not, my main man, TV is going to be right in the thick of things fighting it out for a starting spot under center for Coach D in the EL!
