Blogs > Burney's Bites

Burney's Bites 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 Says! - Friday's Forecast

'09 Prep Football Season - Opening Day Pt. 2
Friday's Top Gridiron Match-Ups in The OC:
Bloomfield Hills Andover v. AH Avondale - Francois Matthews goes buck wild on the Barons inexperienced 'D', D.J. Lynch (Bowling Green) corrals himself double-digits in tackles, and emerging star Tony Harris finds his way into the end zone in aYellowjackets route
Avondale 34 Andover 14
UofD-Jesuit v. Birmingham Brother Rice - The Warriors bust out big in the home opener against hated-rival U-of-D. Frankie Popp goes for 3 TD's - all to Kevonte Martin-Manley, proving why the Rice duo are the best pitch and catch pair in the state. Lockdown corner Michael Brown takes a pick to the house and Jumbo Hamilton introduces himself to the OC by picking up six tackles and a sack.
Rice 31 UofD-Jesuit 21
Clarkston v. Rochester Hills Adams - Clarkston gets the monkey off its back and spoils the Highlanders home opener. Dakota Bender and Tyler Scarlett get a pair of scores each in the Wolves' win. Junior Andrew Hammett's debut under center for Tony Partrito's Adams squad is solid, producing two TD's for the sure-to-be overflowing Brown and Gold mass of a home crowd.
Clarkston 28 Adams 24
Lake Orion v. Hudsonville - Dragons open in style and show why they are the cream of the crop in the metro Detroit area. The dynamic tailback duo of Kym Bruce and Marques Stevenson ploys their way to a combined 200-plus and 3 scores.
Lake Orion 24 Hudsonville 17
Detroit Denby v. Novi Detroit Catholic Central - Shamrocks roll big behind their "fire and ice" pair of running backs in bulldozing Niko Palazetti and fleet-footed Anthony Capatina. CC offensive line stalwart Jeff Sherman gets himself a hand full of pancake blocks and impresses the college scouts
CC 42 Denby 7 
Troy v. Rochester - Chris Wheeler and Damon Brown shine in the backfield for the Colts, displaying another vicious running tandem in the ever talent-laden OC. Rising star Nick Bradley, the Falcons' second year starting QB, gives the team and the home field something to cheer about by showing them there's hope on the horizon. Bradley and speedster Charles Holmes connect on a trio of scores, but its not enough.
Troy 28 Rocheser 21
Troy Athens v. Rochester Stoney Creek - Senior field general Kevin Bolhuis bowls over the competition and gets the home crowd a "W"
Stoney Creek 21 Athens 17
Walled Lake Western v. Flint Carmen-Ainsworth - Western squeaks it out behind Sam Welch and Co. and come back south down I-75 with big smiles across their faces
WL Western 34 Flint CA 28
