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.

Farmington v. Southfield – Watch for Curtis Brunson to star on both sides of the ball for the upset-minded Falcons
Farmington 27-24 (OT)
Farmington Hills Harrison v. Rochester Hills Adams – Sophomore quarterback Ryan Brand is a fast-improving field general for TEAM HERRINGTON. He will be the difference in this one, tossing the game-winning touchdown to Garius Coleman in the closing seconds
