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.

Going To The Mat

Stoney Creek's Andrew Price will be hanging up his football cleats soon.
After this season is through, Price, one of the toughest and smartest linebackers in Oakland County's prep ranks, is done on the gridiron.
Instead, Price, also a star wrestler, has a future that lies on the mat.
The standout Cougar grappler recently committed to wrestle at the college level for Lehigh University in Pennsylvania.
This kid's a force of nature in both sports. Whether attacking ball-carriers or pinning opponents, he's a genuine playmaker, a winner to the core of his being and the Lehigh athletic program is lucky to be getting him.
Last fall, Price helped lead Stoney Creek into the postseason for the first time in six years on the football field.
During his junior campaign on the wrestling mat, he went 57-4 at the 160-poung weight class, accumulating the second-most wins in Oakland County. Finishing fourth in the state in D1, Price personally brought home league, district and regional crowns for the mantelpiece in his trophy room.
