InfoBurgess Owens is a former University of Miami and NFL star who travels the country delivering a message of optimism, hope, and unity.

He spent his childhood growing up in the Deep South during a time when the barriers of segregation were being torn down. As the third Black American granted a scholarship to play football at the University of Miami, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology/Chemistry. During his college career, Burgess was named to Who's Who Among College Students in American Universities and Colleges. He was inducted to the Hall of Fame of Outstanding College Athletes of America and later to the University of Miami's Hall of Fame and the Orange Bowl Ring of Honor.

Following college, Burgess was the 13th player drafted in the 1st round by the NY Jets. He was selected that year as the Jets' Rookie of the Year and to the NFL's All- Rookie team. He was also selected as the Defensive Team Captain for three seasons.

After being traded to the Oakland Raiders, Burgess lead the Raiders defensive squad in tackles on their way to the 1980 Super Bowl Championship. In his last year with the Raiders, in 1982, he was selected as 1st Alternate to the NFL Pro-Bowl. Since retiring from the NFL, Burgess has been involved in both corporate and entrepreneurial endeavors. He is an outspoken advocate for America’s Free Market system and the opportunity it affords ALL to dream and pursue ownership.

Burgess highlights the success of our nation, a 200-year experiment in Freedom that began its mission with three self-empowering words… “We The People”. As we’ve worked, fought and accomplished together, our nation has been the world leader in the creation of its middle class. It has granted millions upon millions the opportunity to live the American Dream regardless of color, religion or how we arrived. We will continue to do so as we remember and teach the Tenets upon which our nation was built… Head, Heart, Hands & Home. This is the doorway to success that allows all who desire to enter.

Burgess is ready and anxious to serve the people of Utah as their Member of Congress and announced his candidacy for the 4th district on November 6th, 2019.
