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.

A Happy Homecoming

Former Oakland County prep sports SUPER STUD Adam Gorski (Birmingham Brother Rice) had quite the homecoming last week when his Ohio State Buckeyes soccer team rolled into town to take on Oakland U.
Thanks to Gorski, a freshman midfielder, OSU came away with the 2-1 victory. Gorski celebrated his return to the OC by registering the game-winning goal late in the second half. The exciting score was the first collegiate goal of his career.
Since landing on campus in Columbus this past summer, Gorski rapidly made his imprint on the Buckeyes soccer program, immediately earning a starting spot. Going into this week, OSU holds an overall record of 10-5-1, 5-2 in the Big 10.
During his days at Brother Rice (2007-2011), my main man AG was all over the Warriors' athletic scene. He starred on not one, not two, not three, but an astounding FOUR Rice varsity squads.
On the soccer field, he was a four-year starter and took the Warriors to a state championship in 2009, as well as a pair of district and Catholic League titles apiece. Over his final two seasons on the prep pitch, Gorski totaled 15 goals and 28 assists.
The wintertime of his high school years saw him play a mean point guard for Rice's hoops squad, garnering three varsity letters. A master floor general, Gorski started on back-to-back Warriors' district championship teams, delving out assists on the hardwood at an equal clip as he did on the soccer pitch.
If that wasn't enough, he ran anchor on a Catholic League title-winning relay team and kicked two seasons for Rice's nationally-renowned football squad, helping take the Warriors to a place in the D2 final four in 2009 and a league crown last fall.
