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.

Soldier Of Fortin

From second-string to scholarship.
That's just the kind of BALLER Brian Fortin is.
That's the backstory on fast-rising Class of 2015 football recruit and 6-foot-6, 235-pound tight end out of Birmingham Brother Rice.
Fortin began the season on the bench. Now, he's starting. And he just earned his first college scholarship offer from Eastern Michigan University. It's probably the first of a handful or more, that's the kind of natural skill at the position we're talking about with this Orange and Black Pigskin SOLDIER OF FORTUNE. What makes this story even more amazing is that he hasn't played since his freshman year.
Expect Fortin to be a major part of the undefeated Warriors quest for a fourth-consecutive state championship in D2, helping block on the line and stretching the field with his pass-catching ability.
