- Growing up, basketball was Burbridge’s sport of choice. “Growing up, I always played basketball. I only started playing football because I had no one to hang out with after school since all of my friends were playing football.” Burbridge began focusing solely on football during his junior season in high school, when he started to receive letters from interested colleges.
- Burbridge’s support system is rooted in his family, as he relies on his mother, Nora Florence, his aunt Geraldine and older siblings, Stefan and Carmen. Despite his late start in football, he has always received encouragement from his family. “They have always been there for me, and it’s really meant a lot, especially during the tough times.”
- Burbridge grew up with former Michigan and current Carolina Panthers WR Devin Funchess, who formed a friendship over competition in Farminington, MI. In middle school, the two participated in different track events but would sneak into the others just to compete against one another.
