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.

The OC Summer Cage Report

After a tough, yet productive summer of hooping out of control, let's grab a gander at how the OC Top 10 on the boys basketball floor looks like heading into the 2014-2015 school year
1 Jeron (Buddha) Rogers (North Farmington) – Best '3-man' in the state, best "Stretch 4" in the area…..YEAH I SAID IT!!
2 Jake Daniels (Holly) – The Flint Metro's own version of DR. J…….break out the scalpel cuz this kid carves up the comp on a game-in game-out basis
3 Trishton Jackson (West Bloomfield) – No. 1 two-sport SUPER STUD in the OC, this LakeShow Special is a lethal weapon of a point guard and a quarterback
4 Kalvon Fuller (Oak Park) – PURE POWER, whether holding down on the blocks or throwing it down on the fastbreak
5 Isaiah Green (Southfield) – Best big guy in the county, silky touch, fundamentally fierce and eager to bounce back after a somewhat run-of-the-mill junior campaign
6 Marlow Brown (Southfield Christian) – Developing into a viciously effective and versatile point forward, ready for a GINORMOUS season in the Eagles quest for a 4-PEAT
7 (tie) Jerald Booker (WL Western) – So smooth, his style of game embodies the "Killing them softly" mantra, the preeminent floor general on the westside of the county
7 (tie) Kyle Woodruff (Holly) – Sniper extraordinaire!!! This TEAM HORSE riflemen hears SWISH as the ongoing soundtrack
8 (tie) Rodney Scales (Oak Park) – Satiny southpaw on the blocks, that can knock down the mid-range 'J', hurt opposing teams with a fast-improving jump hook and bang his way to a near double-double every night
8 (tie) Freddy John (Southfield-Lathrup) – SUPERSONIC SLEEPER PROSPECT, one of the best inside-outside threats in all of  Metro Detroit
9 (tie) Walter Kelser (WL Central) – Just starting to come into his own, has turned himself into an electrifying combo guard
9 (tie) Tabin Throgmorton (Clarkston) – A WOLFPACK swingman that is on the verge of eclipsing SWAGGER LEVEL FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND TRILLION
10 (tie) Timmy Shayoka (Troy Athens) – The ultimate SIR-GRIND-A-LOT in the backfield, relentless competitor
10 (tie) Nick Robak (WOLL) – ROBOTRON is about to go all ROBOTRON in 2015, definition of  dangerous
