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.

Worthy Of Praise

A four-pack of under-the-radar local HS gridiron-standout duos
Dwayne Chapman-P.J. Bauer (OL St. Mary's) – high motors and high football IQs are distinctive traits that both these two linebacker prospects possess by the boatload. We've got a BALELR-&-SHOT CALLER alert brewing along Commerce Road these days cuz these guys are just so so BADDDDDDD, as in REALLY, REALLY GOOD!! Plain winners in life and in the trenches on the field
Nolan Given-Austen Wood (Berkley) – It's a GIVEN that Given is a "sky's-the-limit" talent at wide receiver or safety spot and Wood is the Bears heart in soul, whether at linebacker as QB of the club's 'D' or running the rock up between the tackles with his consistently relentless effort….the kind of kid that craves contact on both sides of the ball....TEAM SIKORA is in rock-solid hands again in 2015 with Given and Wood heading the attack
Tyler Santangelo-Jalen Allen (BH Cranbrook) – A tandem of junior-to-be's who each cuts an imposing figure for opposing defensive coordinators to worry about for another two seasons after blasting onto the scene last fall as super sophs when they sparked the Cranes into the playoffs for the first time in nearly a decade….Can you say PRIMETIME PLAYMAKERS? Santangelo is a fearless field general with a soft touch on his deep balls, composure in the pocket and the word LEADER ingrained in his DNA. Allen is a blazer in the backfield with a nose for the end zone and the shot to get there with every touch he sees
Jamison Scarber-Ovi Oghoufo (FH Harrison) – Watch out here comes another pair of 0-100 HawksNation Hustlers: Scarber is a wideout ready to break out in his senior campaign. Oghoufo has true STAR potential, either as a linebacker or split end
