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.

Eye of The Storm

It's raining transfers again at Oak Park High School.
Besides adding DB/WR Michael Cleveland, a high-profile transplant from East Detroit, the Knights have also landed Storm Hudson, a speedy running back who as a junior in 2011 helped take Utica Eisenhower to a spot in the Division 2 final four.
Since both Hudson and Cleveland enrolled at Oak Park this semester, they will each be eligible for the kickoff of the 2012 season come August. This is Hudson's third high school in 3 years - he played on Lake Orion's 2010 state title team as a sophomore.
Last year, Knights head coach Greg Carter, brought with him close to two dozen transfers with him from his previous coaching stint at Inkster. Carter has won 4 state titles in 21 years on the sidelines and has led his squads into the state championship game on nine separate occasions since 1990.
Hudson (5-9, 165) runs a 4.5 in the 40-yard dash and has shifty moves in the backfield. He will team with Malik Washington (5-7, 150), a prototypical jitterbug with the rock in his hands, this fall to give Oak Park a slippery two-headed monster of a rushing attack in its quest for a return to respectability – the program hasn't qualified for the playoffs in seven years.
