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.

Larceny @ The LakeShow

In possibly the steal of the GLIAC gridiron recruiting season, Saginaw Valley State University has snagged West Bloomfield's defensive lineman Jalen Lewis.
This past fall, Lewis (6-foot-6, 235 pounds) was a dominant rush-end on the first WB football squad to ever win a playoff game, racking up 90 tackles and 10 quarterback sacks for a LakeShow club that went 9-2.
He committed to SVSU last week.
Because he basically came out of nowhere this year and hasn't played a ton of organized ball, the scouts were slow to come calling. As my old high school coach used to say though, the tape doesn't lie!! Lewis was a beast in 2014. He wreaked havoc on a consistent basis and only got better and better as the season progressed.
The WB's playoff-opener against Livonia Stevenson saw Lewis collect a gaudy 15 tackles.
Do the words, ROUGH, RUGGED & RAW mean anything to you!!
Boasting an upside that through the roof, the Lewis-get for the SVSU Cards is practically Grand Larceny!!
