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.

Bonus Bytes - Spring Banter

I'm going to start calling the Birmingham Groves baseball team the "TNT Boys", because these guys are BLOWING UP!!!! After Friday's win over BH Lahser, the Falcons have taken a dozen straight on the diamond.
I can't get over how many home runs are being hit as of late in the local prep baseball ranks; There were another 14 on Friday, highlighted by Clarkston Dustin Peck's grand slam in the Wolfpack's 15-0 blasting of RH Adams
There is no question in my mind that the Birmingham Marian girls soccer squad is going to pull the THREE PEAT!!!! GO GET' EM TEAM BRODSKY!!!!
I love the pitching duo of Abby Klein and Michelle Cottrell on the softball team at Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes…these young ladies can STRAIGHT SPIN
Madison Heights Bishop Foley basketball stars Corey Green and Mike Oravetz are both RED HOT on the AAU hoops circuit this spring playing for DA DYNASTY. Green dropped 48 points in a recent game and is averaging 19.5 points and 15 rebounds per contest so far. Oravetz scored 32 points – canning 7 of 9 from 3-point range – in the semifinals of an AAU tourney down in Ohio hosted by LeBron James. The pair of Venture cage studs helped take Bishop Foley to both district and Catholic League championships this past winter and will be seniors next year.
Football News
Deciding to follow in his big brother Zach's footsteps, Oxford RB/LB Prescott Line has given a verbal commitment to the SMU Mustangs
Birmingham Brother Rice OL/DL Dylan Anderson recently verbally committed to Central Michigan, continuing to feed the recruiting pipeline the Chippewas coaching staff have built into Oakland County
A couple names to watch for next fall; Southfield Lathrup's Jamal Lyles (LB) and Billy Moore (WR/DB), who have both been excelling in offseason competition and raising their recruiting profile. The Chargers haven't made the playoffs in a few years but they remain consistent in the fact that they send players to D1 schools (i.e. Montrell Robinson, Stefan Armstead, Willie Beavers). Lyles is a speedy and tenacious linebacker prospect who can play the MIKE, the IKE and the SAM, while Moore has blasted onto the scene at some recent 7on7 tournaments with his pass-catching skills and big play ability on returns.
