The Burlsworth Trophy is an award given annually by the Rotary Club of Springdale, Arkansas to the most outstanding college football player who began his career as a walk-on.[1][2]

The award, first awarded for the 2010 season, is named for Brandon Burlsworth, who walked on to the University of Arkansas football program in 1994 and ultimately became an All-American. Selected by the Indianapolis Colts as in the third round of the 1999 NFL draft, he was killed in a car accident shortly after the draft.[3]
