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.

That East Coast Flavor

The East Coast is known for breeding outstanding point guards on the basketball court.
Oakland County has luckily been blessed by the presence of one of these floor general specimens this year in Farmington's Avon White.
This kid is ELECTRIC.
The definition of the term PURE POINT GUARD
And if you're a hoops aficionado like myself, man, is he fun to watch go to work on the hardwood.
Like a great quarterback on the gridiron, White gets surgical on opposing defenses, carving them up and running a team at his position like few others in the area.
A few additional adjectives that come to mind when seeing this kid play;
Smart, smooth, sprinter-quick, court vision, cat-like instinct, tireless, tenacious, pesky, LEADER, finisher, dime-dropper extraordinaire, BALLER&SHOT CALLER, The OC's Rajon RONDO
Oh, and he's a winner.
As in that's all this young man knows how to do.
He's got Farmington in the hunt. The Falcons, who nobody saw as contenders coming into this season, are a sparkling 8-1 and he's tallying 15 points and close to seven assists and three steals per game.
Born and raised in NYC, he was hooping at South Hadley High School outside of Boston prior to his family moving to Farmington over the summer. Well, not just hooping……taking the SH Cage Crew to the Massachusetts State Championship Game last March is a better way to put it I think.
Anyway, Avon is the REAL DEAL HOLYFIELD and a pleasure to see to Ball OUT with the Falcons
Can you say unexpected run towards a possible league title?
