Coming Soon to the Big Screen - Greater

The best stories in life are the true ones - the inspirational ones. Greater - the story of Brandon Burlsworth is one of those stories. Greater releases in theatres on January 29/16 - and it's one I'll be watching.

"Brandon Burlsworth is perhaps the greatest walk-on in the history of college football. Brandon dreamed of playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks, but was told he wasn’t good enough to play Division I ball. Undeterred, Brandon took a risk and walked on in 1994. Written off by fellow teammates and coaches, Brandon displayed dogged determination in the face of staggering odds. The awkward kid who once was an embarrassment to his teammates and an annoyance to his coaches, ended up becoming the most respected player in the history of the program, changing the lives of all he touched.

Greater stars Neal McDonough (the CW’s Arrow, Band of Brothers) and newcomer Chris Severio as lead character Brandon Burlsworth, the unlikely star football player at the University of Arkansas whose inspiring life and legacy taught family, friends and fans about the greater purposes and lasting impact of a life lived for God."

Check out the trailer below.....and watch for my review.
