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.

Sleeper Too - WB's Cam Readying To Have A Field Day

Watch out area prep football fans, West Bloomfield senior wideout Cameron Fields is about to have a breakout year. When Fields is playing somewhere at the next level in a few years, you can say Burney told us about this kid before he was a star.  And a star in the making is just what Fields is - a sure-handed 6-2 speedster who will make opposing defenses have to continue to respect the Lakers down-field passing game, even with last year's number receiving option, all-stater Chris Hurst, lost to graduation. Playing in the shadow of Hurst the past two seasons, Fields has been easy to overlook. This summer, however, that all changed. Impressing college recruiters with his performance at a variety of camps and combines over the last two months, Fields has shot up the scouting charts and has positioned himself as one of the hidden gems of the state's current recruiting class. Despite the lack of exposure and touches he got early in his career, is natural talent, determination and steadfast work ethic and attitude, has made him a hot commodity. Central Michigan, Western Michigan and Indiana, amongst other major and mid-major programs in the Midwest, are currently courting him to come play for them. Make no mistake, he won't disappoint.  Look for Fields and new starting qb Phil Brown to make up one of the more dangerous passing combos in the county for '09 and for Fields to pile up stats at a breakneck clip. People may not have heard of Fields right now, but when it all shakes out, I predict he will be one of the more heavily-applauded local athletes of the upcoming school year.
