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.

Forwarding Address

Clarkston's already-stacked backcourt will add another primetime player to the mix next winter.
Word is that Walled Lake Northern freshman basketball star Tabin Throgmorton will be enrolling at Clarkston in the fall.
Throgmorton is a big point guard, with long arms, a fluid stroke and an unreal feel for the floor general position at such a young age – i.e the typical TEAM FIFE show-runner on the hardwood.
He started on the Knights varsity this past season, alongside his older brother, Gage Throgmorton, a three-time all-league selection out of the KLAA headed to play his college hoops at UofM-Dearborn.
Losing the younger Throgmorton to C-Town is a tough blow. He was part of a talented nucleus of underclassmen under head coach Ronnie Thompson.
The Clarkston backcourt that Throgmorton joins is balanced and deep, especially when it comes to ball-handling duties. Press Kampe, (senior), and Drew Myers, (junior), are a pretty rock-solid 1-2 punch at the point. The sniper tandem of Nick Owens (senior) and Mason Vires (junior) keep opposing defenses honest and Merrick Canada (junior) can fill in at either floor general or shooting guard.
A yearly local cage power, Clarkston is the seven-time defending OAA Red champion, but after capturing 18 straight Class A district crowns, the Wolfpack is riding a two-year drought.
