Through the Eyes of a Champion Reviews
Great Book. Excellent Book on how to live a moral life with moral values. A Biography on Brandon Burlsworth, a football player for Arkansas Razorbacks. Who was drafted by the Colts but never played in the NFL becuase he died in an car accident a couples weeks after being drafted.
As with any biography, it isn't written to be entertaining. It's purpose of showing how Brandon Burlsworth was an exceptional individual was accomplished. I remember watching him play with the Razorbacks. I had no idea until after his death the depth of character that he dispayed. I never dreamed that he would still be affecting my life today.
5 out of 5 stars for Through the Eyes of a Champion! This is the life story of Brandon Burlsworth who is probably best known as a former offensive lineman for the Arkansas Razorbacks from 1995 - 1999 (which is also the same time I went to the University of Arkansas). The Razorback football team struggled during Brandon's first couple years but they really came alive when Houston Nutt came to campus for the 1998 season. The Razorback football team went full circle and became really good partially because Brandon was one of the leaders of the team. Brandon and his teammates never quit (they "hit that line and kept on going" as the Razorback Fight Song says). It was fun for me to re-live that time through this book because it brought back so many good memories of my college years. I loved my time in Fayetteville and would do it again in a heartbeat if I had the opportunity! Anyway, this book was very well written. It isn't just about football - it would be a motivational story for not just Razorback fans but for anyone wanting to read about a regular person with a life well-lived. Great book! Happy reading everyone!
Through the Eyes of a Champion is a biographical book going through the life of a champion. Brandon Burlsworth is growning from an unwanted accident of a child, to an abnormally large teenager, to a high school football star. This book is appealing to me because of the sports theme expressed in it.
Great story, great family!
