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.

Deep In The Creek

One of the top "SUPER SLEEPERS" on the local prep baseball scene is Stoney Creek's Jordan Skidmore. This kid is a double-duty doozy – he's a standout at the dish with his stick and on the mound as a pitcher. When he's not throwing strikes toeing the slab, he's behind the plate as a reliable and cannon-armed catcher.
During his junior season in 2015, Skidmore led the Cougars in batting average (415), hits (41) and RBI (30), being named all-league, all-district and all-region. He decimates in the classroom as well, flashing close to a 4.0 GPA. Not surprisingly, the college scouts are sniffing: DI, DII and DIII.
His times throwing on the hill were limited this past spring, due to a unforeseen injury resulting in the club needing him more managing the Cougars pitching staff from the catcher position than actually pitching himself. Don't expect that to stay the norm in 2016.
