The story of Brandon Burlsworth, possibly the greatest walk-on in the history of college football. He had dreamed of playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks, so he walked on in 1994 despite height and weight challenges. An extremely devoted Christian, he was genuinely humble and worked hard on and off the field. He was the first Razorback to earn both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree while playing. Tragedy strikes 11 days after being drafted into the NFL.
