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.

Stocking-Stuffer Special

There are stockings stuffed with scholarships around Oakland County this Christmas, as a bevy of local prep gridiron gladiators made college connections over the past few weeks.
Here's a breakdown:
Jevon Shaw (FH Harrison QB-ATH) – Certified lethal weapon with a pigskin in his hands and under for TEAM HERRINGTON, the best dual-threat field general in the county committed to Ferris State following the Hawks loss in the D2 final four
Jack McKillop (Clarkston LB) – Tackling-machine and genuine leader at the linebacker position, C-Town's BIG MAC committed to Saginaw Valley State
Michael King (West Bloomfield SB-ATH) – Pure electricity every time he touches the rock, King will be riding a lightning bolt a couple hours up 1-75, committing to  Saginaw Valley State
Jake Bills (Berkley DE) – Lived up to his last name and was straight Cash MONEY in the pass-rush department these last couple years committed to Grand Valley State
Aaron Cooper & Aaron Turner (Southfield DL-OL) – These two BlueJay trench-terror run-stoppers helped lead TEAM CONLEY into the final four and both committed to playing in college together at Grand Valley State
Tiroca Battle (AH Avondale DE) – Super Sleeper Stud that has an upside most-accurately categorized as in the stratosphere coming off the edge, Battle committed to Wayne State
Mac Hendry (Birmingham Brother Rice OL) – Stalwart at the point of attack for the Orange and Black the past couple of seasons, Hendry committed to the University of Chicago
