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.

Gridders' Stat Check

Some "numbers" news and notes from the Oakland County prep football scene;
With his quarterback and his glitz stat lines continually hogging the spotlight, Clawson's Donovan "The Jolt" Holt has been an underrated SUPERSTUD in the backfield for TEAM SPARKS this year. Holt has 1,265 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns on the ground, keeping opposing defenses honest.
Birmingham Brother Rice senior quarterback Alex Malzone (Michigan) and Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes junior field general Clay Senerius are in a vicious battle for the OC passing title. Heading into the playoffs, Malzone has thrown for a county-leading 2,394 yards and 26 touchdowns, while Senerius has 2,156 yards through the air and a county-best 28 scoring tosses. It's like the OC's very own BRADY -VS- MANNING and Burney can't get enough of it!!
Waterford Mott senior safety Adam Uplegger is a force to be reckoned with on every play. This kid's a MEGA TROOPER, going to war on the gridiron with his mind and his body like few Burney has seen in the last few years – think old-school ED REED with the Ravens back in the day. Smart as he is hard-hitting, Uplegger has tallied 120 tackles and a county-leading 8 picks already.
All hail the NEW OC Sack King – Royal Oak Shrine's William Arce. The Knight's human A-TEAM has 16 quarterback wrap-ups.
