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.

Surging Ahead

The decision has been made.
Birmingham Brother Rice two-sport star, Sergio Perkovic, a standout on both the prep gridiron and lacrosse field, has decided to play LAX at the next level and recently committed to Notre Dame.
Perkovic is a behemoth. He's as tough a competitor at the high school level that you can find. This kid loves to get down and dirty, whether bringing pressure in the pocket in football or attacking the net in lacrosse from his spot in the midfield.
Only a junior, Perkovic was named a team captain for the national powerhouse Warriors LAX crew, a program that has never finished a season without a state title (YEAH, YOU READ THAT RIGHT!!!!).
Back in the fall, he was one of the leaders of the 'Electric Company' defense that helped spur the Warriors on to a state championship in football. In the state finals against Lowell, Perkovic, a pass rush specialist, set up camp in the Red Arrows backfield, collecting five tackles and three sacks in the Rice victory.
For the entire 2011 campaign, he registered 65 tackles and a team-leading 10 sacks and 10 qb hurries.
Come this fall, Perkovic will join forces with fellow returning 'Electric Company' members like MSU-commit Jonny Reshke (LB) and Luke Cherocchi (LB) to lead a repeat run on the gridiron.
When the curtain comes down on his prep athletic career next spring, my man SP will probably have another one or two state rings to sport on his graduation day.
And that about speaks to all you need to know about Sergio Perkovic. HE'S A PURE WINNER!!!
