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.

Opening Night Roll Call Pt. 2

Friday's best opening-night performances on the prep football field
Jacob Miller (Lake Orion) – Miller literally took the Dragons on his back in the second half of the team's 17-10 come-from-behind victory over Oxford, chugging along for 145 yards and 2 critical TDs
Jordan Degreffenreed (Farmington) – The Falcons' HUMAN SPARKPLUG went all ARIAN FOSTER on Westland John Glenn in Farmington's 32-14 win, breaking loose for 215 yards and 4 touchdowns
Alex Larson (Milford) – Lurking in the shadows, Larson is well on his way to making a name for himself as one of the top quarterbacks in the entire area…..EXHIBIT A…the Mavericks' GRID MAVEN picked up nearly 300 yards of combined offense (194 by air, 96 by ground) in MillTOWN's 42-21 flogging of Flushing
Ian Eriksen (Clarkston) – If you read the Great Burnzini's predictions the other day, you would have known that Eriksen, the Wolfpack's fast-rising junior running back, was going to GET CRAZT BUSY in Week 1 and he did in MAJOR LEAGUE FASHION, registering 242 yards and a robust 5 touchdowns on the ground in C-Town's 42-28 defeat of Rochester Adams. Oh, yeah, by the way, he also took the game's opening kickoff 99 yards to the HOUSE for the first score of the night. Is IE the new AI in 2012?
Cam Thomas (South Lyon East) – The WMU-commit showed why he's the best senior field general in the county, GOING SURGICAL on Friday, torching the Waterford Kettering 'D' for 275 yards and three touchdowns in the EASTSIDERS 25-22 triumph
Ty Sparks (Clawson) – The Trojans new starting field general made his pops, CLAWVILLE's head coach Jim Sparks SUPER PROUD in his first game under center on varsity, lighting up the Harper Wood secondary for a 160 yards and three touchdowns through the air on an efficient 20-of-30 pass attempts in leading his squad to a lopsided 37-0 win.
Anthony Waite (Lakeland) – Took the term 'yardage-churner' to a whole new level in the Eagles surprising 39-14 blasting of Northville, SLICING and DICING through the Mustangs defense for  227 yards and 3 touchdowns
Sean Scullen (Stoney Creek) – Scullen did his best Sly Stallone impression, playing the role of DEMOLITION MAN for the Cougars, putting up over 200 yards of total offense and a whopping 5 touchdowns in the SC's 55-7 clobbering of Royal Oak. WAR TEAM ZUBE!!!
Justin Allor (Stoney Creek) – In his first game as Cougartown's starting signal caller, Allor looked like an old pro, throwing for 220 yards and 3 touchdowns, including an 80-yard scoring strike to Scullen on the THA CREEK's first possession of the second half
