BY ANDREW DOUGHTY

06 JANUARY 2016

Two decades ago, Brandon Burlsworth, an offensive lineman from the small town of Harrison in northern Arkansas, began his journey as the most remarkable walk-on player in college football history. After redshirting as a freshman in 1994, he earned a scholarship the following season and starting spot before developing into one of the best lineman in the nation. Burlsworth was a First-Team All-American in 1998, the Razorbacks’ first such player in nine years.

He was tragically killed in a car accident the following year, shortly after being selected in the third round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts, ending a life of happiness, perseverance and integrity.

Since his death, the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation has created dozens of programs, scholarships and events to support “the physical and spiritual needs of children, in particular those children who have limited opportunities.”

He has also been the subject of numerous newspaper and magazine articles, television segments and a 2001 book, Through the Eyes of a Champion: The Brandon Burlsworth Story, by Jeff Kinley. Burlsworth’s story will now hit the big screen with a feature film.

Greater stars Christopher Severio (Burlsworth), Neal McDonough and Nick Searcy and is set to hit theaters on Jan. 29. Here’s a look at the trailer:

Brandon Burlsworth

Uploaded on Aug 31, 2011

Brandon was a walk on turned All American at the University of Arkansas. He was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts and 11 days later was tragically killed in a car accident. The Brandon Burlsworth Foundation was founded in his name and has several programs: The Burls Kids program takes underprivileged children to all Arkansas Razorback and Indianapolis Colts home games. The BBF in partnership with Walmart provides eye care to 14,000 pre-K thru 12th grade students whose working families are trying, but still cannot afford extras like eye care and do not qualify for state funded programs. We hold football camps each year in Harrison and Little Rock and we have several football scholarship and awards including the Burlsworth Trophy, a national award given out to the most outstanding Division One college football player who began his career as a walk-on.
