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.

Sign of The Times

A few thoughts on some of the local college signings this week from around the area;
Jasmine Harris (North Farmington) – Basketball UMass
Best word to describe Harris' game; VERSATILE!!!!
Melissa Palmer (Troy Athens) – Softball Western Michigan
Will take the place of Kelsey Cleary (Lakeland/MSU) as the county's best leadoff hitter this spring
Gabe Berman (BH Andover) – Baseball Western Michigan
"Gabe the Babe" is one of the most exciting and explosive players in the state!!!!
Nic Stoll (Holly) – Basketball Michigan Tech
Will be the best big man in Northern Oakland County this winter
Katy Severson (North Farmington) softball Uof-D-Mercy
I see Severson leading the Raiders to Battle Creek in 2012!!!!
Sinclair Russell (Troy Athens) – Basketball Oakland U
Expect to see a more multi-faceted look from Russell's game this winter aka she's going to be showing off her newfound perimeter skills….all Burney can say is VERY SCARY!!!!
Jason Gamble (WL Western) – Baseball Central Michigan
PURE POWER on the mound!!!!!
Mary Henry (Birmingham Marian) – Volleyball Duquesne
All my homegirl Mary knows how to do on the volleyball court is WIN, WIN, WIN!!!!!!!
Karin Moss (Troy) – Basketball Buffalo
Coming off an electrifying junior campaign last year, Moss will be one of the best point guards in the state as a senior
Brett Sunde (MH Bishop Foley) – Baseball Western Michigan
Best catcher in the state on the prep baseball diamond….Yeah, I said it!!!!
Allyson Kus (West Bloomfield) – Softball Western Michigan
Burney's sleeper SUPERSTAR for this upcoming spring on the softball diamond             
Eman Hubbard (FH Harrison) – Basketball UofD-Mercy
I absolutely LOVE Hubbard's game……huge upside as a college prospect
Matt Constance (Birmingham Brother Rice) – Baseball Central Michigan
Didn't get much of a look at Constance last year due to injury, but this transfer from the Plymouth school district can straight spin from the bump!!!!!!
Hannah Little (AH Avondale) – Basketball St. Bonaventure
Polished post presence and as hard working as they come…..shot blocking specialist
Gabby Yurik (Stoney Creek) – Golf Michigan State
Most overall talented female high school athlete in the state, DESTROYING the comp whether on the links or on the hardwood
Kellen McCormick (Pontiac NDP) – Basketball Western Michigan
What's most impressive about KM is his continued improvement through the years, ……OUTRIGHT REFUSING to just ride his last name the next level
Kayce Nieto (FH Mercy) – Softball Utah
The "K QUEEN" LIVES for another spring in the OC…..thank god!!!!
Taylor Perry (Rochester) – Basketball Western Michigan
The consummate WORKHORSE…..enough said!!!
Tori Duffey (Waterford Lakes) – Basketball New Hampshire
A big and athletic combo-guard that can create off the dribble, take it to the rack and bomb away from deep…..ummmmmmm sounds a lot like a former Lakers stud HOOPSTRESS who led the program to back-to-back state titles and is currently playing D1 ball up the road at OU
Logan Regnier (Novi) – Baseball Central Michigan
Must run in the family!!!
Jodan Price (Birmingham DCD) – Basketball De Paul
Set for breakout year with the perennial state power Yellowjackets!!!
