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.

Feeling The Flow

The waterfall continues to flow.
Oak Park's football transfer waterfall that is.
In the most recent news involving the Knights transplant-laden gridiron squad, PSL star Mario Morris, will play at Oak Park for his senior year this upcoming fall.
As a sophomore, Morris started under center at quarterback for Detroit Douglas. Last season, he was at Detroit Community, where lined up at tailback and linebacker and was named MVP. Since Community discontinued its football program, Morris, a two-time all-PSL selection, will be automatically eligible with the Knights come their 2012 season opener in August.
Morris is the third high-profile transfer to land at Oak Park in the past couple months – joining East Detroit CB/WR Michael Cleveland and Utica Eisenhower RB Storm Hudson – and the mind-blowing 25th since head coach Greg Carter was hired as the Knights head coach in February 2011.
Like Morris, this is Hudson's third team in three years – when he was a sophomore he was a backup tailback on Lake Orion's 2010 Division 1 state championship team. The fleet-footed pair will join shifty Malik Washington to form quite the three-headed monster of a running attack for the OP this season.
The four-time state champion sideline general Carter is trying to lead the Knights into the postseason for the first time since 2005. Carter and his squad open the upcoming campaign against Detroit East English Village Academy on August 24th.
