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.

Burney's 2015 Football Preview - The Players

The OC Top 25
1 Khalid Kareem (FH Harrison Sr. DE) - Rare specimen of a pass rusher, a human, walking, talking quarterback sack, a field general's worst nightmare, the REAL DEAL HOLYFIELD off the edge, think an OC JJ Watt of sorts: quickness, strength, instinct, work ethic, wow factor, grit, ambition, finishing ability
2 Trishton Jackson (West Bloomfield Sr. QB-WR)- The TRUTH!! Plain and EVERYTHING he does, no matter what!!!
3 Josh Ross (OLSM Jr. LB)- Smartest, most punishing linebacker in Metro Detroit!!!....Yeah I said it!!!
4 Dez Fitzpatrick (Wat Mott Sr. WR) - Smartest, most consistent pass catcher in the whole OC!!!!!.......Please make a note!!
5 David Reese (Farmington Sr. LB-RB) - The BEAST is loose, all forthcoming Falcons opponents please prepare for IMPACT!!
6 Ade Ogundeji (WL Central Sr. DE) - Probably the largest upside of any defensive linemen prospect Burney has ever covered!!
7 K.J. Hamler  (OLSM Jr. WR) - The No. 1 slot receiver in the state.......That's a Burney-Certified FACT!!
8 Cameron Kolwich (OLSM Sr. OL) - Tough-as-nails at the point of attack, best technique of any lineman in the area
9 Cedric Boswell (Birmingham Groves Sr. RB-CB) - Blazer of a ball-toter and lockdown cornerback, in other words, a VERY, VERY SPECIAL COMBINATION
10 Navon Mosley (West Bloomfield Sr. S-SB) - The most versatile athlete in the OC, will kill the comp softly, loudly and with the game on the line in a variety of manners on both sides of the ball
11 Carter Dunaway (Brother Rice Jr. TE/DE)
12 Tom Kowalkoski (Novi Detroit CC Sr. OL)
13 Nolan Eriksen (Clarkston Sr. RB)
14 Kyle Thomas (WL Western Sr. QB)

16 JaRaymond Hall & Marquan McCall (Oak Park Jr./Soph OL)
