Brandon Burlsworth: Ten Years After His Death

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the death of Brandon Burlsworth, the former Arkansas walk-on, turned all-American offensive lineman from Harrison.

Burlsworth epitomized hard work and his legacy lives on through the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation. It's a non-profit operated by Burlsworth's brother, Marty.

Robbie Neiswanger of the Morning News of Northwest Arkansas and Terry Wood of the Northwest Arkansas Times both tackle the Burlsworth topic this morning. Both articles are best summed up from this Marty Burlsworth quote at the end of Neiswanger's article:

"Brandon worked too hard for too long. He made too many sacrifices for April 28, 1999, to be the end of it."
