Join Me on Twitter to Discuss Football and the Burlsworth Trophy on 11/20/12

Are you a college football fanatic? If so, join me (@mochadad) on Twitter Tuesday, November 20 at 4pm (EST) to talk about the Burlsworth Trophy. The award honors college football’s most outstanding player who started his career as a walk-on. If you’re not familiar with the Burlsworth Trophy, watch this short video to learn more:

The Burlsworth Trophy was created to honor Brandon Burlsworth, a walk-on at the University of Arkansas who become team captain and an All-American. He was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts but was killed in a car accident 11 days after the draft.

This year, 40 players are nominated for the award. During the twitter party, you will be able to vote for your favorite player (voting starts at 2:30pm CST. Fan voting is limited to the top 10 semi-finalists).

Mark your calendars now because you don’t want to miss this party. Not only will we have a great conversation about football, but you will also have the opportunity to win one of four $100 VISA gift cards.
