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.

Iron-Casted 'Cats

The Oxford backfield bleeds nails. That's how tough these guys are.
They all ooze grit, personify SMASH MOUTH FOOTBALL. In other words: Bud Rowley football. The kind they've played in O-TOWN since the 1970s.
Stubenrauch had a breakout performance with a game and career-high 127 yards to go along with a back-breaking 34-yard touchdown run in the Wildcats win over Romeo in Week 1. He's a perfect combination of shifty, slippery and fearless. He's wants contact, loves to go up the middle in between the tackles.
And who's clearing the way in front of him? You guessed it, TEAM ROWLEY powerbacks Harris and Patrick, two MEGA SIR-GRIND-A-LOTS that , play like they're made of granite and steel instead of flesh and bone.
I've has decided to nickname Harris "Thunder&Lighting" because of his sick-quick closing speed and punishing tackling skills while playing linebacker on defense. He competes at the fullback spot on offense with the same relentless tenacity.
Man, if I was a coach in the OAA this season, these guys would really spook me…..with O-TOWN and DA CREEK, no more two-team race, guys.
Burney's loving it!!
