Greater: The Incredible True Story of the Greatest Walk-on in the History of College Football

ABOUT THE MOVIE
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.

This movie is phenomenal!

I had the opportunity to watch a screener of Greater last night.

My husband and I come from completely different backgrounds when it comes to football. He loves football and played it in high school. I have no interest in football, never watch it and had never heard of Brandon Burlsworth.

These difference don’t matter when it comes to this movie. We both thought Greater was very well done. It is a very inspiring story based on actual events. I found myself searching the internet to learn more about Brandon when the movie ended.

I can easily recommend this movie to anyone. It’s so refreshing to hear a different type of story. In this world of entitlement, we see things handed to people and all too often see morals and values of those who should be role models slipping. To see someone work towards something and achieve it while keeping their standards and encouraging others is a nice change. The time spent watching this movie was well worth it. Brandon Burlsworth was taken from this life too soon, but thankfully his story lives on.

And for those who prefer books to movies I just saw that there is a book version of this story available too. If it is half as well done as this movie it is worth reading.

This movie is rated PG – I recall a couple mild swear words and there is one scene of drinking which portrayed drinking in a negative light. I would take my children to this movie without hesitation.

Book Review: The Fall of Lord Drayson by Rachael Anderson

The Fall of Lord Drayson

 Title: The Fall of Lord Drayson
Author: Rachael Anderson
Series: Tanglewood #1
Publisher: HEA Publishing
Release Date: August 29, 2016

Book Summary:Who is he really? A high and mighty lord or a lowly servant?

When Colin Cavendish, the new earl of Drayson, informs Lucy Beresford that she and her mother need to vacate the house they’ve called home for the past two years, Lucy is fit to be tied. They have no money, no relations they can turn to for help, and nowhere to go. How dare the earl break the promise his father had made to the Beresfords without so much as a twinge of conscience?

Fate plays her hand when Lucy discovers the earl unconscious and injured in the middle of the road. When he awakens with no recollection of who he is, Lucy seizes the opportunity to teach the earl a much-needed lesson in humility and tells him that he is nothing more than a mere servant. Her servant, in fact.

And thus begins the charming tale of a pompous lord and an impetuous young woman, caught together in a web so tangled that it begs the question: Will they ever get out?

Ever since I heard about this book, I have been looking forward to reading it. I love clean Regency romances, and I love Rachael Anderson’s books. Once I got my review copy, I read it within twenty-four hours. It was difficult to put down to go to bed, and I picked back up again as soon as possible. This story made me laugh. I loved the characters. Both of the main characters had growing to do at the beginning, but grow they did. I loved seeing the journey of their growth. The story took a few twists I didn’t expect. This is definitely a book I’ll want to buy and read over and over again.
Rating: 5 stars – I loved it!!!
