(American Football Offensive Lineman)
Birthday: September 20, 1976 (Virgo)
Born In: Harrison, Arkansas, United States
Brandon Vaughn Burlsworth was an American football player who played for the Arkansas Razorbacks as an offensive lineman between 1995 and 1998. He initially joined Arkansas Razorbacks as a walk-on but later he was handed an athlete’s scholarship and eventually became an all-American. His thick black glasses and resemblance to comedian Drew Carey gave him a unique look. The football fraternity had great expectations from the talented young man but fate had other plans and he was killed in an accident. After his death at a young age, the football community came together to pay tribute to his achievements and his family and friends built a foundation in his name. The Brandon Burlsworth Foundation is a symbol of Brandon’s work ethics and Christian values and provides support to children with limited opportunities. His jersey #77 was retired at the University of Arkansas as a gesture of honoring his memory.
