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.

Dearly Departed

Everyone's thoughts and prayers should be with Berkley boys hoopster Jonathan Radner this weekend.
Radner, a spirited senior guard and Oakland County's leading scorer last year, lost his dad to a sudden heart attack on Friday night.
Mr. Radner was the best. He never missed a second of watching his son play or encouraging and supporting him in his endeavors whether on or off the basketball court. He was the kind of dad that was always positive and always there with a pat on the back and a kiss on the cheek no matter win, defeat or his son's individual performance.
I got a chance to know Mr. R the last few years and he was a super guy and an even better father. My heart aches with pain for Jonathan and his family. The loss is monumental.
Your pops will be dearly missed 'J.' He loved you so much and it showed every second I saw him watch you. He'd beam with pride so bright it was practically blinding.
No doubt he will be doing the same from above from now on. RIP!!!
