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.

He's Going Back To Cali

Orchard Lake St. Mary's Daelin Hayes, one of the nation's most highly-touted prep football prospects, has fallen in love with L.A.
Who wouldn't?
Hayes, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound running back-linebacker, committed to USC, following a visit out to Cali over the weekend.
A rare breed of pigskin specimen, this TEAM PORRITT incoming junior blue-chipper had almost every elite D1 college football power in hot pursuit of his talents – he held more than a  dozen top-tier scholarships offer (including Michigan and Michigan State) at the time of his commitment to the Trojans.
Making this story that much more special is the fact Hayes has literally only played one set of downs in his high school career.
Mind you, it was a mighty impressive set, chugging 15 yards on his first carry last season, before sustaining an injury two plays later that shelved him for the majority of his sophomore campaign in 2013.
Man, Burney can't wait for this GRIDIRON PRODIGY to hit the field next month and start devouring the comp at the rapid clip I know is on the horizon very shortly.
