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.

Green Grass Central

Farmington Hills Harrison has overcome a lot this season on the football field, defying the odds and the talking heads to have a simply marvelous campaign. Some of those odds going against the Hawks derived from the fact that several players left the program, leaving behind noticeable voids – chasms in the lineup that have been filled admirably
A handful of those who departed went on to have good seasons on the gridiron elsewhere.
Let's take a look:
Ryan Brand (U-D Jesuit Jr QB) – Rock solid under center for the Cubbies, doing the job with his arms and his legs, leading the program to its first playoff berth and district title in a dozen years. Last season, Brand was TEAM HERRINGTON's starting signal caller
Robert Powell (West Bloomfield Sr QB) – Brand's back-up last year at Harrison, took off for THE WB and lit up the Lakeshow scoreboard like a pin ball machine, tearing up the pocket while throwing for over 2000 yards.
Todd Moore (Clintondale Sr SB) – Dangerous in open space, who was also the Hawks best hoopster and is now plying his trade quite successfully in Macomb County
Desmond Fitzpatrick (Farmington Soph WR) – One of the most heavily-recruited split ends in the state's Class of 2016, the most precise route-runner and softest hands of a 15-yr old maybe ive ever seen first-hand.
Jakkar Jackson (Farmington Soph ATH) – Multi-skilled grid stud already getting recruited at the D1 level as only a sophomore, fast, pesky and instinctive on 'D,' slithery with the rock in his hands on 'O'
