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.

East By North

Walled Lake Northern's gleaming gem on the diamond aka senior Brennan Williams has committed to Eastern Michigan University for his college baseball.
Williams (6-foot-4, 215 pounds) is a righty who plays in the outfield, as well as at first base. He pitches, too.
The Eagles of EMU have gotten itself one sizzling sleeper of a Blue-Chip talent if you ask me.
Everything about this kid's game is big. He's got a big arm from right field and a cannon when toeing the slab. His bat speed and power at the plate is eyebrow-raising to say the least. At a Prep Baseball Report-sponsored showcase earlier this month, BDUB went HAM and delivered a HUGE performance in front of scores of scouts. Does the term PRIMETIME mean anything to you?>
Last spring, he hit over 400 with 32 RBI and boasted an ERA of 1.76.
EMU went 28-29 in 2013.
