In Brandon Burlsworth, the bespectacled former walk-on from Arkansas, former Colts general manager Bill Polian believed he had drafted a player who could be to Indianapolis offensive line what Peyton Manning was at quarterback. Air Max 97 Damen Schweiz .Burlsworth was working with the Colts starters at his very first mini-camp in 1999. He never got the chance to prove Polian correct. Eleven days after being drafted, Burlsworth was killed in a car crash while driving from Fayetteville, Arkansas, to his hometown of Harrison. He was 22.Burlsworths inspiring life story is the subject of the film Greater, which opened Friday in theaters around the country.The good thing about this is Brandons legend lives on in Arkansas, but through this film millions of kids and families around America will get to know him, said Polian, who is now working as an NFL analyst for ESPN.Greater is the first film made by producer Brian Reindl, an Arkansas football fan and real estate developer. Reindl convinced Burlsworths parents to trust him with their sons story in 2005.Burlsworths walk-on tale is familiar in many ways. He dreamed of playing major college football for the big state school, but was not good enough to receive scholarship. A late bloomer, he was 260 pounds as a senior in high school, but had enough athleticism and determination to earn a spot at Arkansas as a walk-on. Once he got the chance he took off. He became a three-year starter and as a senior was a second-team AP All-America and legitimate NFL prospect.Even before Polian met Burlsworth face-to-face the reports he received about him were glowing.Incredible perseverance and dedication and the highest possible character, Polian said.Burlsworth could play, too, even though he never had the typical look of potential star. The dark horned-rim glasses he wore under his helmet were the first thing that stood out, Polian said.The body was Baby Huey, but inside that body was a really tremendous athlete, Polian said.The Colts drafted Burlsworth in the third round, 63rd overall.Colts offensive line coach Howard Mudd had worked with Burlsworth at the Senior Bowl before the draft and knew what he was getting. Mudd quickly installed Burslworth in the starting lineup, Polian said.The other players were saying, `Wow, this guy must be pretty special, Polian said.After Burlsworths death, his brother, Marty, started a foundation in Brandons name that helps provide glasses to needy children in Arkansas and gives kids a chance to attend a Razorbacks football game. In 2010 the Burlsworth Trophy was created to honor the top FBS player who began his career as a walk-on.Theres never a day where I dont think about Brandon, Marty Burlsworth wrote in a story posted on The Players Tribune on Friday. Whether Im driving around town, past the baseball park where we used to play catch, past the Razorbacks signs on front lawns, I feel his presence. Kaufen Herren/Damen Air Max 97 Summit weiß Schweiz . Barcelonas entertaining victory ensured the defending Spanish champions retained their share of the league lead with Atletico Madrid two rounds ahead of their meeting in the capital.

Max Verstappen admitted he briefly thought a second F1 win was up for grabs when Mercedes drivers collided on the final lap of the Austrian Grand Prix.Verstappen turned in a stellar drive to hold off Kimi Raikkonen in the final stages after a 56-lap stint on soft tyres, a fight that had originally been for the final podium spot before the Mercedes drivers collided while fighting for the lead at Turn 2. Lewis Hamilton was able to drive on and win, though Nico Rosberg dropped to fourth after the collision wiped out his front wing, elevating Verstappen to second.It was a great start and a good first lap, Verstappen said. Straight away the pace was there in the car so I smoothed up to the front and once I cleared some guys I got into my own rhythm. I think everything was going well and I did a long stint on the soft tyre so the last ten laps made it very hard and I could see Kimi behind me, he was catching up a lot.To finish second after what happened on the last lap and to finish second as a Red Bull driver at the Red Bulll Ring is a great feeling. Kaufen Air Max 270 Flyknit Herren Damen weiß/Schwarz/Blau Schweiz. he final laps were reminiscent of Verstappens maiden win in Spain, where he held off Raikkonen in another masterful drive of tyre management. He admits that battle did cross his mind at the time.As soon as I saw him in the mirrors I was thinking about Barcelona, he was catching quite a lot compared to Barcelona, but I tried to make no mistakes and in the end we kept him behind which is what we wanted. It is great to stay on the limit until the end of the race.That maiden win also came after a Mercedes collision, though on that occasion it was on the first lap and both Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton retired from the race. Verstappen admitted he briefly thought a win was there for the taking again in Austria.Of course [the thought crossed his mind], the chance is bigger but today one crashed ... you take the opportunity but it is normally not like that. Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
