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.

How can eather one of these coaches be considered for the job , when according to what I heard none of them apply for the job , nor interview for the coaching position ? Was informed that the job was down to two people one they called coach GEE from Bloomfield and the other was a coach Wilson from Canada. Sometimes don't smell right
