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.

Sweet Georgia Green

Just like music legend Ray Charles, Madison Heights Bishop Foley senior basketball superstar Corey Green has Georgia on his mind.
Green, an explosive all-state forward recently named to the Oakland Press' annual Dream Team, will sign a National Letter of Intent to play his college ball down in Georgia at D2 North Georgia State on Monday afternoon in a ceremony held at Bishop Foley for friends and family.
This past winter Green put up some robust stats; he averaged 24 points and 15 rebounds a game and was arguably the best slam dunker in the entire Metro Detroit area. Since landing at Bishop Foley in 2010, he has led the Ventures to back-to-back Catholic League and district championships. Foley's 2011 CHSL crown was the first ever in school history. Not many players were as dominant as Green was on the hardwood last season. He simply took games over and willed his team to wins. The word PRIMETIME comes to mind when thinking about his skill with the ball in his hands in the clutch.
There's no doubt in my mind this kid has D1 talent. You just can't teach the kind of athleticism and natural court instincts Green has and he will shine brightly at the D2 level the next few years…….TAKE IT 2 THE BANK!!!

N. Georgia State is getting itself a flat-out STEAL
Under head coach Chris Faulkner, N. Georgia St. concluded the 2012 campaign 11-18.
