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.

Take Nothing For Granted

Don't be shocked if Birmingham Brother Rice all-state wide receiver Grant Perry winds up catching passes from his high school field general Alex Malzone as college teammates in Ann Arbor.
Perry, one of the state's all-time greats at his position, is currently committed to Northwestern and Malzone, a spectacular specimen of a quarterback, will enroll at the University of Michigan next month.
The experts are projecting Malzone into the race for the starting job under center in the fall.
Now, with Jim Harbaugh entering the picture this week, set to be named Michigan's new SAVIOR….wait I mean head coach, Perry becomes a factor in Maize & Blue's 2015 recruiting class.
Word is that Harbaugh likes Perry (I mean who wouldn't). He's familiar with him because Jimmy Gridiron God and Perry's dad grew up together.
So if Perry inks with TEAM HARBAUGH on Signing Day instead of the NW Wildcats, remember your boy Burney called his shot on this one!! The photo Perry Tweeted of himself and Malzone at the Dream Team banquet earlier this month with the heading "Just the beginning" might be a tip-off too.
Malzone-to-Perry at the BIG HOUSE……believe it!
