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.

headline: Steal At The Hill
Can you say grand larceny?
Ferris State's football program just got a steal in the recent commitment of Saginaw Arthur Hill defensive end Lawrence Gordon, a 6-foot-6, 260-pound tidal wave of swagger coming off the edge. He has more than 20 sacks since his sophomore campaign and is raw potential in every meaning of the term. Gordon is the kind of kid that could have easily landed at the DI level. That's the kind of upside we're talking about here.
Burney wouldn't be shocked if Gordon winds up as an All-American pass rusher at the DII level in a few years. His closing speed and natural off-the-ball talent is the type you can't teach. This is an outstanding grab in the recruiting game for Ferris State – the Bulldogs are 2-0 so far in 2015.
