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! - Saturday's Forecast

Riverview Gabriel Richard v. Southfield Christian - The Eagles, led into battle by DI players Taylor Calero and Devon Bailey, are surrounded by a lot of hype and some hefty expectations coming into the '09 season. Will they live up to their press clippings and make this a season to remember? Burney Says: a resounding YES!!! SC shows big in the opener in front of the home crowd, running away with a exhilarating win behind 150 yds and 2 tds on the ground by Bailey and a pair of tds through the air by new qb Conner Michaels. Calero wrecks havoc in the GRichard backfield all game, recording three sacks and a dozen tackles.

Royal Oak Shrine v. Detroit Douglas - The Knights Phil Galloway breaks out from Anthony Cade's enormous shadow and leads coach Goddard's Shriners to a "eek out" win on the road. Galloway stomps his way for 175 on the ground and new starting qb, Branch Kampe, looks sharp in throwing for three td's in his debut for the blue and gold.

Suttons Bay v. Waterford Our Lady of The Lakes - Junior field general Mike Sullivan brings a slingers mentality to legendary coach Mike Boyd's traditionally run-happy offense and I predict the results will be kind over the next two seasons. Entering his second year under center, Sullivan kicks off the campaign in style, tossing for a trifecta of scores in a Lakers victory.
