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.

From East To West

The destination has changed from Ypsilanti to Kalamazoo.
This week, West Bloomfield senior football star Obbie Jackson de-committed from Eastern Michigan and immediately committed to Western Michigan.
Jackson (5-foot-10, 165 pounds) is a lockdown cornerback prospect, but was also an all-league wide receiver with the Lakeshow in the prep ranks.
He and his baby brother Trishton (all-league quarterback) teamed to help lead The WB to a banner-campaign (9-2, third playoff berth in school history).
Obbie had four picks, almost 500 yards receiving and eight touchdowns this fall.
Western Michigan went 8-4 in 2014 and will be facing Air Force in the Idaho Potato Bowl on December 20. Second-year Broncos head coach, P.J. Fleck, has been aggressively recruiting Metro Detroit since taking the helm in late 2012.
