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.

Keeping It In The Family

The University of Michigan is getting a Dunaway two-for-one special. When talking about value and pedigree, this pair's in a league all by itself.
With his big brother, senior Birmingham Brother Rice football star Jack Dunaway (defensive end) already headed to Ann Arbor next fall, sophomore Warriors' gridiron standout Carter Dunaway (tight end) came on board with the Maize and Blue this weekend.
The younger Dunaway (6-foot-6, ½ , 240 pounds) committed to become Jim Harbaugh's first recruit for his Class of 2017 on a visit to campus. He's glue-handed, a physical blocker and all-in-all ready to erupt this fall, not to mention set to anchor the transition for the program from the celebrated Alex Malzone era. Oh by the way, on the subject of Malzone, the OC Golden Quarterback God is at Michigan now, fighting it out for the starting nod under center in spring ball.
The Jack Attack was a quarterback's worst nightmare these past two years for the powerhouse Brother Rice pigskin brigade, establishing himself one of the state's top pass rushers. Last season, he racked up 10 sacks off the edge.
The Dunaways' pops, Craig, a righteous dude If I've ever met one, played at Michigan in the early 1980s and then had a cup of coffee in the NFL with his hometown Pittsburgh Steelers. Wow, shocker, right?
