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.

Prepping For A Title?

Pontiac Notre Dame Prep is a feel-good story on the boys basketball court this winter.
The Fighting Irish are a surprising 8-1 with no superstars, just a bunch of rock-solid SIR-GRIND-A-LOT SPECIALS. And boy are they putting the FIGHT in Fighting Irish with their collective play!
Super soph Tariq Derrickson drilled a game-winning buzzer-beater Tuesday to top AA Gabriel Richard. He's on the verge of eclipsing SWAGGER LEVEL FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND TRILLION and he's only in the tenth grade! Seriously, this is a PRIMETIME PLAYA taking flight before our eyes here.
Former CMU point guard Whitney Robinson is doing an amazing job on the bench and is a true up-and-comer in the profession for sure.
Zach Shango and Pat Bridges are a pair of snipers from beyond the arc. Shango had 5 triples Tuesday night and is developing into a walking, talking ATM kiosk with his performance in the clutch, lately.
NDP squares off with Detroit Loyola in their next game with first-place in the CHSL AA on the line.
