Spartanburg is still trying to deal with the tragic death of city parks system director Brian Wofford in a motorcycle accident last week.

Wofford was a star on the football field at Spartanburg High School and at Clemson University, where he snagged 179 catches for 2,273 yards and 10 touchdowns in 1999.

“Brian was a special friend to me and a special young man. Brian was just an outstanding person. He always had that big smile on his face. It is going to take a long time for the community to get over him. We will certainly never forget him. I’ve never had anything affect me as badly as this,” said Spartanburg Mayor Junie White.

Wofford, 34, was buried on Wednesday at Heritage Memorial Gardens.

He was killed last Friday in a motorcycle accident at the intersection of Riedville Road and Plateau Street. Wofford’s motorcycle struck a car driven by Jewell Cote of Pacolet, 20, who turned into Wofford’s path. Wofford died about 20 minutes after the 11:25 a.m. crash, Highway Patrol reports show.

The crash is under investigation.

Wofford was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Wofford was key to Spartanburg High winning back-to-back state football championships in 1994 and 1995.

In November 2008, Wofford was named the city’s parks and recreation superintendent. Less than two years later, the state Recreation and Parks Association named him the young professional of the year.

“He cared deeply about this city,” said city manager Ed Memmott. “I will never forget Brian’s thoughtfulness and how much he cared for our youth and residents in need. We all are just at a loss right now. His family is in our prayers.”

Wofford leaves behind a wife, Boisha, and 11-year-old daughter, Kaelyn.
