Considered by many to be one of the greatest walk-on players in the history of college football, Brandon Burlsworth’s life story is certainly one worth telling.
And fans will soon be able to witness the recreation of the wonderful highs and tragic ending of the former Arkansas offensive lineman’s life in the form of the film”Greater.”
According to Fox 24 anchor Channing Barker, the movie will premier on August 23 in Fayetteville at the Malco Razorback Cinema.

Its release date for other theaters is August 26.
Burlsworth worked his way up from walk-on status to become an All-American offensive lineman for the Razorbacks in 1998. He was drafted in the third round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts, but died just 11 days later in an automobile accident.
He is a member of the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame and his No. 77 jersey was retired by the Razorbacks.
Here’s a peek at the trailer of the soon-to-be released movie:
