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.

The Local Landing Strip

Some local football recruiting news & notes:
West Bloomfield all-state defensive lineman Eddy Wilson traded up to D1 and the Big Ten, de-committing from Bowling Green University and committed to Purdue STEADY EDDIE might have been the most disruptive force at the point of attack in the whole area in 2014. He led the Lakeshow to astounding heights (first playoff win in school history) and has a trajectory in the pigskin trade that is gearing toward the moon
Southfield star defensive end Charles Harris snagged a DI scholarship, too, accepting an offer from the University of Buffalo after a senior season where he exploded for 12 sacks and an amazing 27 tackles-for-loss on a 'Jays club that collected league, district and regional titles on their way to the Division 2 final four
Orchard Lake St. Mary's defensive lineman Josh Dabney was a first-team all-state selection for the defending Division 3 state champs and ushered in the New Year by choosing to continue his career on the gridiron at Northwood University.
Grand Valley State picked up a pair of OC play-making wide receivers in Farmington's Omari Mitchell and Birmingham Seaholm's Austin Paritee. What a great 2-for-1 OC special....these guys are SIR-GRIND-A-LOT Specials stretching the field....That's a Burney-Certified Guarantee!!
Auburn Hills Avondale split end Jalen Saunders is heading to the GLIAC as well, committing to Northern Michigan. Saunders is a big target (6-4), has soft hands and is a force to be reckoned with in the red zone
Fresh off helping spark his Birmingham DCD squad into the Division 4 state semifinals in the fall, 'Jackets safety-linebacker Joe Bergin has agreed to take a preferred walk-on spot at Northwestern
Southfield Mr. Do Everything Ja'Mar Antwine is back on the market. The versatile 5-foot-10 "Snoop" Antwine, who can play cornerback, wide receiver, running back and is a game-changer returning kicks and punts on special teams, recently de-committed from Central Michigan
