Burton was a guard that stayed busy in the lane for the 31-1 LaFayettte Bulldogs. He finished with 15.3 PPG, 4.1 RPG, and 3.5 assists per game for the 2019-2020 season and selected as the O-A News’ Small School Boys Basketball Player of the Year. Burton is the whole package as a guard. Whenever the Bulldogs needed someone to step up and take over the game, Burton was that guy. He is a relentless driver to the rim and creates shots for himself. He also has the ability to knock down deep jumpers from the 3 point line.
