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.

Hunger Games

Metro Detroit prep pigskin pride will face-off with a formidable foe in hunger on August 21, as Ford Field will host the first-annual Forgotten Harvest Classic, showcasing four competitive match-ups on the gridiron, including one of Oakland County's best rivalries.  
Clarkston and Rochester Adams are set to lock horns in the event's nightcap at 7:00 p.m., bringing a close on a great day of football and fun that will see all its proceeds donated to Forgotten Harvest, the country's most successful food-bank and a staple of area philanthropy for the past 22 years.
Forgotten Harvest donates over 40 million pounds of food to the needy yearly.
Both Clarkston and Adams are expected to be heavyweights on the high school football this fall.
The pair of perennial OC powerhouses traditionally meet in the first week of the season.
The Wolfpack of C-Town has won two straight in the series.
Some of the top players that will be on hand at Ford Field in August when TEAM K-RICH and the Highlanders are: Michigan State-commit Matt Sokol, Adams' quarterback and a future college tight end and Clarkston's college-recruits like the OC leading-rusher in 2012 Ian Erickson, star cornerback Timmy Cason, "big nastys" in the trenches, David Beedle and the Matich brothers (Nick and Andy) and shifty and versatile quarterback-defensive back Caine Watlington. Adams' running back Clarence Broadnax is another name to be on the look-out for.
