Arkansas football: Brandon Burlsworth 'Greater' trailer released

Brandon Burlsworth will forever be known as one of the greatest walk-ons in the history of college sports after he started his career with the Arkansas Razorbacks and ended it as an All-American drafted in the third round by the Indianapolis Colts.

Tragically, he was killed in a 1999 car accident before he was able to suit up with the Colts.

Burlsworth's legacy of hard work  - and his signature thick-rimmed glasses - live on in Arkansas and throughout college football. The Burlsworth Trophy is given each year to the most outstanding FBS player who began as a walk-on. There is a Brandon Burlsworth Award given out yearly at both Harrison High School and the University of Arkansas. Burlsworth's No. 77 is only the second retired jersey in Razorback history and the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation supports the physical and spiritual needs of children, especially those with limited opportunities, through scholarships and football camps.

And, now, that legacy includes an inspirational movie "Greater." Here's the trailer for the film, which will be released Jan. 29.
