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.

Cole Miner's Son

The DC Baby Baller won't be straying far from the nest. Can you say Diamond in the ruff?
Birmingham Detroit Country Day senior football star Derrick Coleman, Jr. signed his National Letter of Intent with Wayne State this week.
His dad, Derrick Coleman Sr is a former NBA all-star and prep and college All-American born and raised in 'The D'.
This is a steal for the WSU Warriors. Checking in at 6-5, 225 pounds, Coleman plays tight end or defensive end. He's got soft hands and runs good routes on offense. His length and rampaging motor gets him to quarterbacks and ball-carriers alike in a jiffy.
WSU finished 3-8 last fall, two seasons removed from a run to the D2 National Championship Game.
Papa Bear should be very proud!! And Burney is sure he is.
