Just days after the death of a football player during surgery, a South Carolina high school is also mourning the passing of one of its coaches.
As reported by The State newspaper of Columbia, Spartanburg (S.C.) High School athletic trainer and coach Bryant Rose died suddenly on Monday after a brief stay in the hospital following surgery.
Rose’s death was a brutal blow to the school just three days after another death; Spartanburg football player Nick Dixon, died during a surgical procedure on Friday.
An autopsy on Dixon’s death is still pending.
The school community hosted a memorial in Dixon’s honor Sunday night, with Tweets from the event now circulating across social media.
It remains to be seen whether the school will hosting a similar event for coach Rose, but additional support staff will remain available for students and staff who need it.
