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.

Tough Question

Why aren't Farmington Hills Harrison incoming senior football stars Jake Slobin and Garius Coleman getting more props from the college recruiters?
Tough question, right? (Don't state title rings and total wins as starters mean anything these days?)
These two MONSTER grid talents are not being heavily sought after for their services at the next level, despite being three-year starters on one of the NATION's top football teams and consistently showing off their respective playmaking abilities.
Slobin is a ROCKofGIBRALTER in the trenches for the Hawks and is getting dogged for his lack of size. What about his heart? Which, by the way is the size of the city of Farmington Hills itself. Can u say all the X-FACTORS needed to succeed at the next level?
As of right now, only Grand Valley State and Ferris State have offered Slobin scholarships.
Then, there's the G-TRAIN, TEAM HERRINGTON's shifty jitterbug in the slot, who always has ALL THE RIGHT MOVES on the field of battle and ALL THE RIGHT GENES, in terms of being the nephew of Mill 'The Thrill' Coleman, Harrison's OC and one-time QB, who goes down as arguably the most dynamic prep football player in state history.
The G-Man is taking heat because of his wheels –  he doesn't have 4.4 speed. Well, neither does Kevonte Martin-Manley (Birmingham Brother Rice), currently starting in the Big 10 at Iowa as a redshirt sophomore.
COLLEGE RECRUITERS take note; This pair are both SUPER BALLER talents that won't disappoint at the next level and get the job done despite of the HATE!!
