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.

Raw, Real, & Ready To Go

With all the hype flying around Clarkston these days regarding the arrival of Dylan Alderson, a DI boys basketball recruit from Davison ready to team with Foster Loyer (soph PG) to give TEAM FIFE the No. 1 backcourt in Oakland County, my main C-Town hooping homeboy Tabin "T-RAW" Throgmorton is getting a little lost in the shuffle. Make no mistake about though and all due respect to Alderson, who is a MONSTER STUD of a combo guard and one of the best juniors in Metro Detroit, T-RAW is going to be the difference between the Wolfpack pocketing their first trip to the final four since 2009 this upcoming season or going home prior to the annual late-March CAGE BASH at the Breslin Center in East Lansing. Yeah, I SAID IT!! So far this summer he's slicing and dicing the comp (looking mighty sharp on the AAU and team camp circuit). Expect more of the same come December and tipoff to his senior year on the hardwood.
This silky smooth and oh-so-deadly wing man is a fundamentally-sound GAME-CHANGER at the small forward spot, a 6-foot-4 ASSASSIN with a killer instinct and a sugar-sweet stroke from deep. His diverse skill set – long, wiry, hardworking, sturdy handle, high bball IQ, finishing ability on the break and on his move to the hole, both mid-range and long-range lethality and an underrated first step on his dribble drive – will allow for an easy transition to a guard spot at the college level. In other words, he's a BALLER & SHOT CALLER and someone you need to account for every second he's on the floor. To say T-RAW ain't your normal No. 3 option is the understatement of the century. He'd literally putting up 25 a night on 75 percent of the squads in the OC, but instead he's sacrificing his own stats for the ultimate goal : a shot at the crown. His play was integral in the Wolfpack's 2015 campaign which saw THE C-TOWN CAGE CREW claim its' ninth league title in a row and appear in the Class A quarterfinals.
Foster "The Phenom" Loyer –No. 1 player in the OC…..'NUFF SAID!!
Dylan "A-TEAM" Alderson – Total terror in the backcourt at both the 1 & the 2, crafty, gritty
Tabin "T-Raw" Throgmorton – COLDBLOODED is the best way to describe his game
CONCLUSION: These guys are about to give a whole new meaning to the term BIG 3…'s about to be LEGEN……WAIT FOR IT…….DARY!!
