Harness earns Burlsworth award

Friday, March 5, 2010
Green Forest Tiger head football coach Bill Gotto, left, and assistant head coach Tony Coffey, right, stand with senior lineman Tyler Harness, who is holding the Brandon Burlsworth award and book he received for outstanding dedication and commitment to the Tiger football program. To receive the award, a player must demonstrate the drive, diligence to school, and good moral character that the former Razorback All-American and Indianspolis Colt was known for. Burlsworth, a former Harrison Golden  Goblin, was drafted with the 63rd pick by the Colts in the 1999 NFL draft. Tragically, only days after his first mini-camp, he was killed in a car accident on U.S. Hwy. 412. The Brandon Burlsworth Foundation was founded in his honor. David McNeal / CCN
