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.

Bo Knows Football

Bo became THE MAN today. It was really only a matter of time. Being THE MAN is in his genes ya know! Yeah, Baby Pick aka Bo Pickens, the youngest of the PRICELESS Pickens clan that has produced three all-staters on the gridiron for Birmingham Brother Rice (Matt, Doug, and Jimmy), finally broke out of his siblings' quite sizable collective shadow Saturday in the Warriors' exciting 40-34 triumph over their sister school in the Windy City, Chicago Brother Rice at the annual PKC. After spending the past few years battling injury and an overload of elite talent in the classes in front of him, Baby Pick earned a spot in the secondary for his senior campaign wearing the Orange&Black and was all over the field in nickel-and-dime duty against ChiTown Rice Saturday in a game played at Wayne State. He looked like.....yep, you guessed it....a Pickens brother. Eviscerating everything in his vicinity and leading by example in the heat of competition and in the locker room runs in the family. That's what Bo did on Saturday and I expect to see much more of it as the season progresses for the TEAM SOFRAN 4-PEAT PARADE. MAD WARRIORSNATION Shout Outs to Mama AND Papa Pick for raising such great children and blessing us, the OC PREP PUBLIC, with their varied skill-sets and consummate class.
