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.

Five For Fighting - Brothers In Arms

Five For Fighting – Top PRIMETIME PLAYERS in Brother Rice's win in Friday's state finals
1 Devin Church (RB) – The Warriors all-time single-season rusher danced his way to 244 yards and 3 TDs, sparkling like the diamond in the rough he truly is. Is it surprising that my man DC is the leader of Rice's PRIMETIME POSSEE backfield? I didn't think so.......
2 Mark Doman (LB) – Led the Rice "Electric Company" defense with 13 tackles and 2 sacks, sparking a complete domination of a very well-oiled Lowell offense
3 Eddie Kidd (DB) – This standout senior cornerback did his best Charles Woodson impression on Friday afternoon, picking off two passes in the win, both which thwarted seemingly momentum-building drives by Lowell all-state field general Gabe Dean and the Red Arrows
4 Dylan Anderson (OL) – The anchor of the Rice O-Line did one heck of a job clearing the path for Church's record-breaking day on the ground
5 Jason Alessi (K) – If Alessi doesn't bang home his 26-yard field goal in the third quarter, the Warriors could have been in for a whole different ball game down the stretch in their 24-14 victory. The word that comes to mind is CLUTCH!!!!
