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.

More Southfield Sleepers

Last summer around this same time I wrote a blog post about the growing amount of "sleepers" that were emerging on the prep football scene in the city of Southfield.
Well, this summer the Southfield sleepers are back in force.
Let's take a look at a few of those Burney is telling everybody to keep their eyes on:
Jeff Madison (Southfield) – This transfer from East Detroit could wind up being one of the best linebackers in the OAA in the fall
Trey Walton (Southfield) – Only a junior, Walton is versatile and shifty and will see time all over the field (WR/RB/QB/DB/KR) for the Bluejays this season
Cedrick Hill (Southfield) – Fast, strong and a lethal hitter on the gridiron, Hill, nicknamed "The Gorilla" by his teammates for his imposing style of play, will be a 'X-factor guy' for Bluejays head coach Tim Conley this fall at safety and fullback
Collin Parks (Southfield-Lathrup) – Poised for a breakout campaign toting the rock for the Chargers
Ben Hollaway (Southfield-Lathrup) – Will team with Parks to make a potentially dangerous and dazzling 1-2 punch in the backfield at Lathrup
Billy Moore (Southfield-Lathrup) – Might be the best wide receiver nobody knows about in his league…has 'big-play' ability
Justin Pritchett (Southfield Christian) – Another talented speedster whose coaches expect a big campaign rushing the football in 2011
