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.

Michigan Man

Nick Wallace can do several things really, really well.
Whether its basketball or football, he demolishes the competition.
The Madison Heights Madison two-sport standout announced his intentions for college recently, signing to play hoops at the next level with University of Michigan-Dearborn.
At the high school level, Wallace is an all-league selection in both sports, a multi-year starter at quarterback on the football field and at center on the basketball floor.
He's a true winner, too.
As a sophomore, he quarterbacked Madison's gridiron gang to a district title, coming into the huddle in the playoffs in relief of injured senior starter Tony Lowry to glowing reviews.
Back in the fall, he posted big-league caliber stats in leading the Eagles to a 9-1 record.
On the hardwood, he's a 6-foot-6, walking-talking double-double, helping spark Madison to a district crown last March.
UofM-Dearborn is 7-23 this winter. The team's captain is former Clarkston point guard Julius Porter, who just reached the 1,000-point mark for his career this week.
