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.

A Decade In The Making

Next month's Prep Football Kickoff Classic is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
(That's quite a bit of AMAZING GRIDIRON ACTION, don't 'cha think?)
Well, the PKC (put on by the Detroit Sports Commission ) recently released its' ALL-DECADE squad and the OC has a very nice trifecta of pigskin prodigies that made the cut.
Let's break it down, shall we!
Jake Vento (FH Harrison 2011) – One of the most prolific and electrifying prep football studs this area has seen in the past 10 years-plus (23 straight wins has gotta count for something, right?), Jake was TRULY a SNAKE, spewing venomous playmaking everywhere he went, whether at wide receiver, quarterback, safety or kick-and-punt returning. PURE GAMER!!
Alex Malzone (Birmingham Brother Rice 2013) – The OC GOLDEN GOD under center…….'NUFF SAID!! As elite a field general prospect as you can find…… AMERICA!!!
Johnny Kelly (Oak Park 2013) – This kid's name is THE MACHINE GUN, so the fact that he killed the comp, shredding OL St. Mary's from the backfield last season should be no surprise to anybody. I think my man Ludacris summed it up best about the Knights all-state tailback-cornerback combo and high-level D1 recruit, when he sang his song 'GUNNING FOR THAT NO. 1 SPOT', which Kelly certainly is doing as I write these very words
