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 BlueJays Bench Bulletin

Southfield HS coaching news:
I'm talking about Mr. Trifecta himself, Bluejays lead BALLER and coaching-genius extraordinaire Tim "the CLOSER" Conley. "The Closer" did what he does Tuesday, close deals, close curtains and post banners: he guided his Southfield boys track team to an OAA league championship. That's to add to his OAA football and wrestling titles he took his clubs to in the fall and winter, respectively. Conley's 'Jays gridiron gang made the final four in 2014.
