Great story and a must read for those who like football and what it takes to be the ultimate pro. Brandon Burlsworth was intelligent, getting his Master's Degree in four years at Arkansas. Brandon was the ultimate son, student, football player and citizen. Brandon also lived a moral life, read his Bible daily and loved God above all. He was simple and preferred to stay in the limelight. The picture of him with the big black glasses exemplifies his life and frugalness. The big black glasses were the cheapest he could find to wear while he was playing. Brandon was a walkon in college who turned down playing on a scholarship to play for his beloved Razorbacks. It was just a short time before he fined tuned his huge body into a first team member with a scholarship. Next he was an All-American and was chosen in the third round by the Indianapolis Colts. Unfortunately Brandon was killed in a tragic automobile truck wreck. His life cut short, but his life lives on through the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation which gives scholarships out to worthy students who need the help. Also, the 'Burls Kids' programs where less fortunate kids are taken to see the Indianapolis Colts and the Arkansas Razorback games each year. Although Brandon never played a down with the Colts they have continued to support the memory of Brandon. Brandon's life lives on through these programs.Was this review helpful?
