Inspiring Football Walk-on Brandon Burlsworth Gets Story Told in ‘Greater’

If you haven’t heard of Brandon Burlsworth, the film "Greater" is the perfect introduction. Burlsworth was an impressive young man who became an incredibly successful walk-on for the Arkansas Razorback football team. His work ethic, his sincerity, and, most importantly, his faith, inspired his teammates both on and off the football field. He got drafted to the NFL at the age of 22, but tragically died in a car accident just 11 days later.

Burlsworth’s life is remembered beautifully in “Greater.” Newcomer Chris Severio does a convincing job capturing the young man’s love of life and his constant desire to be all that he could be in God's eyes. His attitude never failed to bring out the best in everyone. Neal McDonough ("Arrow") gives an equally compelling performance as his older – often cynical – but always supportive brother. 

By the film's conclusion, the audience may not understand why Burlsworth was taken so early, but they will understand the meaning behind the title.

Check out the film – in theaters nationwide this Friday, August 26, as well as an exclusive clip below. What better way way to welcome the start of the NCAA football season?
