Brandon Burlsworth, possibly the greatest walk-on in the history of college football, is profiled in the inspiring sports biopic Greater, which debuted on Blu-ray™, DVD, and digital December 20 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Told he wasn’t good enough to play Division I football, Burlsworth (played by Chris Severio) took a risk and walked on in 1994, becoming the most respected player in the history of the program.
The small-town Burlsworth had always dreamed of playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks, but was considered too short and too fat to play Division I football. Undeterred, Brandon, with the help of his struggling mother, took a financial and emotional risk by walking on to the team in 1994. Despite criticism from teammates and coaches alike, Brandon succeeded in the face of staggering odds. His faith and unstoppable determination helped him rise to the forefront of the team. And by the end of his college career in 1999, Burlsworth was not only a star player in the toughest conference (The SEC) but also a First Team All-American.
