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.

Burney's Baseball Rankings - April Showers

Burney's OC Prep Baseball Top 10 - Late April 2011
1          Birmingham Brother Rice; You can't stop freshman phenom Matt Ruppenthal, you can only hope to contain him
2          Lake Orion; Sophomore hurler Nick Deeg is a SUPERSTAR in the making
3 (tie)  MH Bishop Foley; Zoom Zoom, The Schalk Boyz, and Bret 'Mayday' Sunde are SO DANGEROUS on the diamond, Burney gets chills just thinking about them
3 (tie)  MH Lamphere; The most prolific front end of a batting order in the area, highlighted by leadoff genius Mitch Kozlwoski, ultra-steady Ryan Horvath and the GOLDEN BOY himself Greg 'G-Bomb' Fettes in the clean-up spot
4          Clarkston; Dustin Peck for president!!!
5          Troy Athens; Anthony Carillo is CRAZY GOOD!!!
6          WL Central; The experience factor with this group is overwhelming, will payoff come state tourney time
7 (tie)  RH Adams; Is there really any question that Adams will be in the thick of things come late next month?.......I don't think so
7 (tie)  Stoney Creek; Cougars are one of the best hitting teams in Metro Detroit….and you can take that 2 THE BANK!!!          
8          BH Andover – I'm going to start calling Gabe Berman, 'Gabe the Babe', cause this kid has a Ruth-like presence in the local prep baseball scene
9          Birmingham Seaholm – Brand new skipper Dan Drapal is doing one heck of a job getting the Maples off and running in 2012…..Derek Amboyen could wind up being Burney's MVP this year, he has Miggie-esque capability in the carry-a-team-on-his-back department.
10 (tie)        Birmingham Groves – There are some real hidden gems on this Falcons roster and I'm not just talking about Mike Mestdagh
10(tie) - AH Avondale; Don't test 'Jackets catcher Mitch Robinson on the base paths 'cause he'll gun you down like his name was Joe Mauer
