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.

Knight & Day

A lot of people have asked me how long I think it will take new Oak Park head football coach Greg Carter to get the Knights back headed in the right direction.
My response:
About a second or two after his squad kick's-off the 2011 regular season next month....the difference between 2010 and 2011 will be like KNIGHT and day
Coach Carter is that good!!!.......his resume….aka his four state championships and seven state finals' appearances speaks for itself
I predict Oak Park will qualify for the playoffs this season, reaching the postseason for the first time in a half-decade…..Burney is calling his shot!!
Helping Carter's cause with the Knights will be a group of high-impact transfers, some of whom followed Carter to Oak Park from his previous coaching stint at Inkster.
Here are three new Knights to keep an eye on this fall:
Denzel Wright (RB) – This Inkster transplant will do most of the heavy lifting in the OP backfield this season and if his performance this summer is any indication, he will take the Oakland County prep scene by storm
Marquise Wallace (OL/DL) – Coming over with Wright from Inkster, Wallace is a big, beefy and agile lineman who will anchor the Knights' up front
James Gault (ATH) – Blessed with wheels of steel...aka...blazing speed...Gault will line-up at multiple spots on the field for Coach Carter in 2011, including wide receiver, tailback, defensive back and kick returner
