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.

Where's The Love?

Southfield Christian senior basketball studs Chris Dewberry, Gavin Toma, and Lindsey Hunter III aren't getting enough love on the college recruiting circuit.
None of them have finalized their plans for playing at the next level and a lot of that has to do with not enough college scouts taking interest in them.
It's not like they romped their way to a state title this past winter or anything…..Oh, wait, they did!!!
Hunter III will probably be at a prep school next year, with a good shot at landing on a D1 roster in 2014. However, Dewberry and Toma are being virtually ignored.
Some of the lack of interest regarding Toma has to do with even though he was one of the best point guards in the state last season, because of injuries it was his first full season of varsity hoops.
Dewberry is a bit one dimensional – he's strictly a lights-out shooter. That said, he could be the best pure shooter this area has seen in years. IMO, there is not a player in Oakland County that I would rather have taking an open shot with the game on the line….Yeah, I said it, he's that money shooting the rock!!!
Toma and Dewberry are just as good, if not better, than many of the local players that have already secured spots on college rosters for the next season. Hunter's pedigree speaks for itself.
ATTENTION Local college coaches – Get on your game and sign one or both of these CAGER CATALYSTS up as soon as possible!!!!!
Mark my words, wherever these guys wind up playing their college ball, they WILL end up making a SIGNIFICANT impact!!
