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.

Need-To-Know Basis

Most people don't know about Birmingham Seaholm's Mike DeGeeter and Austin Roth.
They should. And will soon.
DeGeeter is the Maples boys basketball team's new head coach. Roth is DeGeeter's best player and currently Oakland County's leading scorer.
A fiery senior guard with a relentless attitude and a penchant for the big play, Roth pumped in 29 Thursday in Seaholm's upset at home over Oxford. He had a 31-spot back on Tuesday versus Birmingham Brother Rice and is as gifted and determined as an offensive hoop stud as there is in Metro Detroit.
DeGeeter,Seaholm's old JV coach, is doing one of the OC's most impressive jobs on the bench this year. The Maples are 7-4, 2-0 in the OAA Blue.
