Brandon Burlsworth is perhaps the greatest walk-on in the history of college football. Brandon had always dreamed of playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks, but was considered too short and too fat to play Division I. However, 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, and proved every one who had ever doubted him wrong

Whether you are of faith or not, understand football or the fervent devotion to "Friday night football" culture, this movie is much more than about either/both. It is a truly inspiring and uplifting story about a young boy who took every advantage given to him and even created a few to get to become the incredible young man he was. This movie is worth a watch by everyone - sports fan or not, and faiths of all perspective.

GOD so thoroughly used this man as his faith in Him kept growing. His reward awaits, with his call from grave by Jesus. Fantastic person as a role model for children & the older kids like us...

Greater is not only an awesome movie but is based on one of the greatest stories you'll ever hear. Greater tells the true story of Brandon Burlsworth and his dream of playing for the Arkansas Razorbacks football team. After high school he had scholarships for smaller colleges but he wanted to play for the Razorbacks, so he joined as a walk on. Brandon worked hard nonstop to get a spot on the team no matter the odds and once he did, he became one of the best college football players. He even was drafted into the NFL although I don't want to say too much. Brandon's story is very inspiring and moving. He was determined and continuously worked hard to achieve his dream of being a Razorback. Whether you like sports or not this is a great movie and a heartwarming story that everyone will love.
Rating 5/5 stars.

We enjoyed this faith based movie very much. A great story well filmed and well told. Pleasantly surprised that hey took the time to build Brandon's back story so that his character was believable and solid. If you need and inspiring story, then this is the right film to get.
