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.

Let's Look Forward

2016 OC Boys Hoopster Power Index
1 Trishton Jackson (West Bloomfield Sr. G) – Look up electrifying in the dictionary and you'll see this kid's name
2 Foster Loyer (Clarkston Soph G) – Has the potential to be a "once in a generation" type and an all-time great in the OC
3 Billy Thomas (North Farmington Sr. G) – The best pure shooter in the state…..Yeah I said it!!
4 Spencer Littleson (RH Adams Sr. G/F) – Recruiting stock is soaring, dynamic talent, ace sniper and mega playmaker
5 Amuri Hardy (Southfield Jr. G) – DI-level floor general who will rebound in GINORMOUS fashion in 2016 after a knee injury took away most of his sophomore campaign, crafty speed-demon with a lightning-fast release and deadeye stroke from deep
6 Walter Kelser (WL Central Sr. G) – Baby Special K will shine again and even brighter next season….that's a Certified Burney Guarantee!!
7 (tie) Taylor McCaskill (Troy Athens Soph G) – MCAWESOME in everything he does on the hardwood, gearing up for a legendary prep career in the city of Troy  
7 (tie) Tariq Derrickson (Pontiac NDP Jr. G) – Could be a Top 5 player in the county by mid-2016, he's a scary "under-the-radar" prospect to keep a major eye on (believe me the college scouts are)
8 (tie) Kyle Woodruff-Ian Hodges (Holly Sr. G) – No. 1 backcourt in the OC, Woodruff will back from a shoulder injury with reckless abandon to challenge Billy Thomas & Spencer Littleson for bragging rights in the most dangerous outside shooter department in the area and Hodges will continue his ascent as a "southpaw snazzy" in the backcourt with the ability to do damage in multiple ways on the court   
9 Marlow Brown (Southfield Christian Sr. G/F) – No. 1 small-school player in the OC, straight killer on the hardwood and a first-class winner to boot
10 Tabin Throgmorton (Clarkston Sr. G/F) – Some ways to describe by main C-Town hooping homeboy T-Double aka T-RAW: Long, lanky, assassin from beyond the arc, smooth, savvy, cagey, clutch, tough-as-nails, terror on the wing
