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.

Stop The Presses!!

Stop the presses, stop the presses!!!
One of the area's top young floor generals is on the move.
This past week or so it became official, Press Kampe, a two-year varsity letter-winner at Rochester Hills Adams, has transferred to Clarkston and joined the Wolves perennial juggernaut boys basketball team.
Entering his junior year in 2013, Kampe will assume point guard duties for TEAM FIFE and C-Town in the wake of the six-time defending OAA Red champion Wolves' losing all-league backcourt star Mitch Baenziger to graduation.
Press is the youngest son of longtime Oakland University Men's Basketball Head Coach, Greg Kampe. Baenziger, also an all-league pick as a quarterback on the football field, will be playing college hoops for the elder Kampe starting this upcoming season at OU.
Branch Kampe, Greg's older son and Press' big brother, was an all-state quarterback as a prepster at Royal Oak Shrine who is now playing in college at LSU.
While at Adams, Press helped take the Highlanders to a district crown and an appearance in the Class A SWEET 16 aka the regional finals in 2011. Last winter during his sophomore campaign, Adams concluded the year 13-8.
Clarkston's backcourt is stacked for the near future. Besides the addition of the spunky Kampe to their guard pool, the Wolves feature all-league senior standout Jordan Dasuqi, a nasty combo guard that just came into his own last season, and sharpshooter extraordinaire Nick Owens, one of the best long-distance bombers in the area's Class of 2014, among others (I'm talking to you Blake "Baby B" Pokely).
Under the guidance of legendary sideline general Dan Fife, C-Town will once again be a top-ranked squad in Class A and favorites to raise the program's seventh straight league title.
