The life and death of Arkansas Razorback walk-on, Brandon Burlsworth is memorialized in the movie “Greater” and is a brilliant blend of spiritual and intellectual inspiration. Brandon had a dream to play football for the Razorbacks. Despite having no money, no scholarship, being ridiculously overweight, and mercilessly teased about his faith and his love for his mamma—Brandon not only ended up making first team All-American, but was chosen by the Indianapolis Colts in the 3rd round of the NFL draft. He is known as the greatest walk-on in the history of the game. However, his story isn’t great just because of his accomplishments on the football field; it is great because of his journey and the people he touched along the way. His tragic death at age 22 raised the question—“Why would God allow this to happen to someone who had worked so hard, lived with such great faith and inspired so many people?” The question is answered in the people who are still being touched and inspired by him. His family understood it and the epitaph they chose for his tombstone says: “Our loss is great; but our God is greater.” His life was great because He lived it for the glory of God’s. What does that mean? His faith wasn’t manifested in what he said—it was what he lived and who he was. His relationship with God was reflected in his respect for his coaches, family and even his teammates who, at first, had no respect for him. God’s Spirit was reflected in his humility, his huge heart, by owning his mistakes, and his absolute determination to succeed. He was unafraid to let others see His love for God and his transparency eventually transformed the lives of his teammates. His untimely death placed his story in the limelight and put his life on a trajectory to influence even those who never knew him. His life inspires me to ask myself: “What am I doing today which will still influence others for eternity when I’m no longer here?” God has given us all the same opportunity to live for His glory—it is what we do with it each day that will still be here after we are gone.
