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.

Fall Is Just Around The Corner

Burney's 2015 OC Offseason Prep Football Player Power Index
1 Khalid Kareem (FH Harrison Sr. DE) – Most destructive pure pass-rush prodigy this area has seen in a long time, had 19 sacks in '14, owns almost 20 FBS scholarship offers
2 Josh Ross (OL St. Mary's Jr. LB) – Bone-crushing specimen sideline-to-sideline, intelligent, instinctive playmaker and leader, genuine winner and workhorse, on and off the field……one of the best linebacking prospects in the whole Midwest
3 Trishton Jackson (West Bloomfield Sr. QB) – His nickname is "Action Jackson" and he's the best dual-threat quarterback in Metro Detroit, hands down!!
4 Matt Falcon (Southfield Sr. RB) – Possesses all the tools to be a superstar both with the 'Jays at the HS level and whichever of the many FBS schools in college recruiting him that he ends up inking with next February…injury-plagued seasons as a soph and junior, have only produced flashes of brilliance that will be coming into full bloom this fall
5 Dez Fitzpatrick (Farmington Sr. WR) – Elite split end with game-changing skills and tenacious work ethic, outthinks and out-hustles the opposition, the ultimate student of the wide receiver position committed to Louisville
6 K.J. Hamler (OL St. Mary's Jr. WR) – Best slot receiver in Metro Detroit, bar none, can decimate defensive backs going deep or across the middle, maybe the No. 1 return-specialist in the OC as well
7 Emmanuel Jackson (Novi Sr. ATH) – The 'E' stands for ELECTRICITY…..he's simply electric whenever he's got the football….. this kid's got the JUICE to light up the whole westside of Oakland County…..his moves & cutbacks leave opposing tacklers in the dust…oh and he has sprinter-type wheels and breakaway burners
8 David Reese (Farmington Sr. LB) – Fast-rising, versatile talent who is imposing and relentless in tracking down ball-carriers, catchers and quarterbacks alike
9 Nolan Eriksen (Clarkston Sr. RB) – Speed-&-Power combo toting the rock for two-time defending D1 state champion C-Town,
10 Kyle Thomas (WL Western Sr. QB) – Stat-mongering signal-caller who is fierce, fleet-footed, smart, savvy, poised, precise and has PRIMETIME written all over his game
