Burney’s Top Running Backs in The State For The 2016 Campaign
1 Allen Stritzinger (Warren De La Salle Sr.) – Injury-plagued junior season has only emboldened this playmakers’ spirit, resolve and desire for a colossal senior year toting the rock….committed to Syracuse (might play in the secondary in college)
2 Markus Sanders (Canton Sr.) – Does it all, does it great, does it with style and class!!
3 Davion Johnson (West Bloomfield Sr.) – Wheels, strength, blunt force between the tackles, finesse, soft hands, warrior attitude, natural instinct to demolish oncoming tacklers 
4 Eric (Red) McCarn (Southfield A&T Jr.) – Total package of a runner, ready to explode in the stat column, will make the comp see red (get it?)
5 Kaiser Carleton (Macomb Dakota Sr.) – Typhoon of terror with the pigskin in his grasp, little guy, giant heart, monumental skill set in the backfield…committed to Eastern Michigan
6 Tim Cheatham (Detroit Cass Tech Sr.) – The “Motor City Cheetah” is on the prowl in the PSL once again, please hide the women and children  
7 Lance Mitchell (SCS South Lake Sr.) – Efficient and slick with a nose for the home run play, was Oakland County’s leading rusher last year while at Madison Heights Madison
8 Mike Fluegel (Clarkston Jr.) – I call him ‘White Lightning,” because this kid can fly!!!
9 Jared Smith (Pewamo Westphalia Sr.) – Destroys rushing records like they stole something from his mama!!
10 LaTommy Scott (Muskegon CC Sr.) – Small-school wonder, definition of a winner!!
