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.

Double Trouble Alert

With The Human Hologram aka all-state burner Josh Holloman off to college in Cincinnati, Auburn Hills Avondale will be filling some pretty big shoes in the backfield this fall on the gridiron.
No worries, Team Deutsch is ready to roll out a gruesome twosome of ball-toters in Vince Wright and Ahmad Sharon and they could be on the verge of joining forces with senior captain and third-year starting quarterback Travis Janes and spurring the Yellow Jackets' back into the playoffs after a two-year absence.
Wright is a workhorse, in other words a Straight G rushing the rock right up the gut. But he also possesses the breakaway speed and instinct that should allow him to exploit gaps in defenses for potential chunk plays
Sharon is a multi-purpose slotback, the kind of kid that has future star written all over him. He'll line up all over the field in 2015, showing off his versatility. Strictly from the "TD-in-an-instant" department, Sharon has the chance to be Hologram blink, he scores WILL BE a common theme come fall......Please, make a note!!
Janes is the "given" in this situation – you know what you're going to get from him every snap of every single outing, plain and simple game-changing intelligence, athleticism, a soft touch on his passes and a jitterbug quickness that always makes him a threat to take off from the pocket and hurt opposing clubs with his feet.
So to sum it all up: the 'Jackets will be back stinging with supreme efficiency in about a month and although The OC Heavenly Hologram will be missed the cupboard in the Avondale backfield is far from bare.
