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.

Unfairly Overlooked

In a glaring and overtly unfair omission, Birmingham Seaholm senior quarterback John Glaizer was left off the All-OAA Blue squad. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
You can easily make a very strong argument that Glazier was the best quarterback in the whole league this fall, so how he wasn't one of four field generals selected ALL-OAA is a head-scratcher of massive proportions.
One assistant coach from the OAA Blue commented to me upon reviewing the all-league list that Glazier "got shafted." According to that particular assistant, not only should Glazier been tapped All-OAA, he should also be in the running for MVP of the entire Blue Division – that's how important his play was to the Maples successful campaign in 2011.
A two-year starter under center, my boy JG spearheaded the Maples to the playoffs for the first time in six seasons. His leadership and playmaking were humongous X-Factors in Seaholm's memorable autumn on the gridiron.
The stat line doesn't lie. Glazier completed 55 percent of his passes this year for over 1300 yards, while posting 17 touchdowns (11 through the air, six on the ground against only 4 picks).
Is someone going to try and tell me these numbers weren't worthy of being considered in the top echelon of his league? Come on, GET SERIOUS!!! This is a downright OUTRAGE!!!!
ATTN; OAA – You should be ashamed of yourselves!!!!!
Don't fret OC PREP FIENDS, Glazier isn't done tearing it up in the prep athletic arena just yet. This spring you'll get to see Glazier return to the mound as an all-league hurler for the Maples baseball team. I for one CAN'T WAIT!!!!
