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.

Chipping Away At It

On the heels of a mega campaign from the mound, recent Ortonville Brandon grad and prep baseball star, Sean Martens is headed to the Division I college ranks as a reward for his pitching prowess.
Martens, a tough-as-nails righty signed with Central Michigan University this week, nabbing a DI scholarship at the last possible second (he had been headed for Northwood).
One of Oakland County's premiere aces in the 2014 season, Martens went 9-1 with an astounding 0.36 ERA and 96 strikeouts in 60 innings of work, spurring O-Brandon to a league title out of the Flint Metro.
He eclipsed a dozen Ks twice in the spring, fanning 13 in a pair of Blackhawks' victories.
Central Michigan finished 36-23 this year.
There were six OC-bred Diamond Cutters on the Chips roster in 2014 (Brother Rice's Pat McKenzie, Novi's Regnier boys, Logan and Nick, Lake Orion's Nick Deeg WL Northern's Jason Gamble.
Joining Marens in the incoming CMU recruiting class is another top-notch hurler from the area in West Bloomfield grad and MLB draftee Dazon Cole (ATL Braves in the 29th rd).
