questions In January, George had tried out with two dozen others for the debate team. He had been quite frank with Jack. His father was a corporation lawyer, and he wanted his son to follow in his footsteps. George, who felt no burning call to do anything else, was willing. Question 1: What’s the meaning of ‘burning call?’ Question 2: George was willing == George was willing to follow his father’s footsteps? If not, what was George willing to do?

Burning call = in this context, 'no desire / no interest in anything other than being a corporation lawyer" George was willing == George was willing to follow his father’s footsteps? If not, what was George willing to do? Yes, you are right, George is willing to follow in his father's footsteps because he has no interest in doing anything else.
