Wright Wins Burlsworth Character Award

Fond du Lac High School senior Will Wright has won the state of Wisconsin Burlsworth Character Award’ for the Fond du Lac Football team. Brandon Burlsworth is considered the greatest walk-on in NCAA football history. He was drafted in the 1st round in 1999 by the Colts and died shortly after in a car accident. This summer, the movie “Greater” is coming out in theaters chronicling the life of Brandon Burlsworth. At the end of the movie, Will’s name will be listed in the credits. Will was nominated in October and we found out last week that he was selected as a recipient. Wright is pictured here with Fond du Lac football coach Mike Gnewuch.
