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.

Five For Fighting - Just Doing It

FIVE FOR FIGHTING – The Best outings on the OC prep gridiron Saturday afternoon in the Final Four
1 Jonny Malone (Novi Detroit CC) – The senior WR-DB went all NEON DEION circa 1995 with the Cowboys, catching a touchdown, returning a kickoff to the house and snatching an crucial INT in the Shamrocks' 35-6 throttling of Rockford…….Can you say PRIMETIME PLAYER?
2 Grant Niemiec (OL St. Mary's) – One of the classiest acts around in the state's high school sports scene, Niemiec became the Eaglets all-time single-season rushing leader by going for 181 yards and two touchdowns in St. Mary's 28-7 downing of Battle Creek Harper Creek. All this kid does is WIN and GRIND and then WIN some more!!!!
3 Brian Walker-Shon Powell (Birmingham Brother Rice) – This electrifying tailback tandem is killing the comp lately, showing why they are both Class of 2014 D1 college prospects; Powell went for 105 yards and a touchdown while Walker had 155 all-purpose yards and a score in the Warriors 31-3 walloping of Wyandotte Roosevelt. Can you say DOUBLE TROUBLE?
4 Chris Carter (Birmingham Brother Rice) – The junior safety was in ED REED mode on Saturday in the Warriors gridiron whipping of their downriver foes, making a game-high 13 tackles, to go along with a vicious quarterback sack in the second half on a blitz where he went straight up the middle and smothered Roosevelt field general Kevin Matejko
5 CC 'D' – Limited state-power Rockford to a paltry 6 points the entire way in the Shamrocks win….'NUFF SAID!!!! WAR Team Mach TRUCK!!!!!
