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.

Training Camp Report - Oxford

These 'Cats can play.
Oxford is suddenly a basketball school. The football-obsessed Wildcats' community has a boys hoops squad they can be mighty proud of for the upcoming campaign. Think razor-sharp and ready to rock-n-roll like an Elvis Pressley concert.
TEAM HENNING won the OAA Blue last season and this year, it returns the bulk of its rip-roaring rotation of cage fiends.
Alright let's ROLL CALL it!!
Jamal Thomas – Tough, crafty, athletic & smart sophomore floor general with an upside at the prep level that is through the roof
Del Alexander – "Sleeper Superstar" with length, drive, flawless slashing and finishing ability, pogo-stick hops, aggressiveness on the boards and the right attitude on and off the court…..'NUFF SAID!!
Connor Elzerman – "Sleeper Superstar" with as sweet a stroke from the perimeter as there is in Metro Detroit, a deadly mid-range game and ice in his veins in crunch time
Mason Vires – Judging by the offseason, this OC MAD GUNNER is gearing for the early frontrunner slot in the OAA MIP race, he's bigger, stronger and more complete than ever. So let's review, now, Vires (a transfer from Clarkston) is not simply an ace long-range bomber from beyond the arc, but also a serious threat to beat you off the dribble to the tin and either score it or find an open teammate via his newly-found playmaking streak
Jordan Jaden – Fireplug guard and fierce competitor, will be one of the best sixth-men in the area out of the backcourt
Jeremy Mullen – Big fella with a nice touch inside and out, prototypical "glue guy"
Ray Luvine – Fast-rising sophomore stud of a guard that loves to mix it up and is ready to shine in his first year of varsity comp
