Event description
The Burlsworth Trophy is presented each year to “college football’s most outstanding player who began his career as a walk-on".

About this Event

The Burlsworth Trophy was first awarded in 2010 and is presented to a young man who embodies the values that Brandon Burlsworth stood for. Brandon was a walk on football player at the University of Arkansas and completed his college career as an All-American and the 63rd overall pick in the NFL draft. He was the first razorback football player in history to complete his masters degree before playing his final college game. The Burlsworth Trophy is given by the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation at a ceremony each December. Notable former trophy winners include Baker Mayfield, Hunter Renfrow and most recently 2019 winner Kenny Willekes.

The Brandon Burlsworth Foundation was founded in 1999 in honor of Brandon who was tragically killed in a car accident 11 days after being drafted by the Indianapolis Colts. The Foundation honors Brandon’s legacy by helping underprivileged children in need through various programs including the Eyes of a Champion program, Burls Kids, Burlsworth Football Camps and more. In 2001, the book “Through the Eyes of a Champion, the Brandon Burlsworth Story” by Jeff Kinley was released. A movie about Brandon’s life, “GREATER” was released as a major motion picture in 2016. It was written and produced by Brian Reindl and David Hunt. GREATER is now available on Netflix.
