ABOUT THE MOVIE: Brandon Burlsworth is perhaps the greatest walk-on in the history of college football. Brandon dreamed of playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks, but was told he wasn’t good enough to play Division I ball. Undeterred, Brandon took a risk and walked on in 1994. Written off by fellow teammates and coaches, Brandon displayed dogged determination in the face of staggering odds. The awkward kid who once was an embarrassment to his teammates and an annoyance to his coaches, ended up becoming the most respected player in the history of the program, changing the lives of all he touched.

Movie Blurb from publicist: “Starring Neal McDonough who plays Marty Burlsworth Brandon’s older brother. It’s an inspiration and uplifting film about one of the greatest walk-on stories in college football. It’s also a great story about perseverance in not only Brandon’s efforts on the field but his relentless faith in the Lord to help him through the challenges he faces in his life. It is that persistence that allows him to reach greater heights in his college football career.”

Bring plenty of tissues to this film as you see how many people Brandon’s life touched on his way to making football history.
