Woodruff, SC, is Mourning

Legendary high school coach Willie Varner has died.

The superintendent at Spartanburg District 4 mentioned in the linked article, Dr. Rallie Liston, was my ninth grade English teacher at Clinton (SC) High School.

One of Coach Varner's proteges was W. Keith Richardson, the legendary Clinton High School coach. Coach Richardson came one night to see our family when I preached revival in Hodges, SC, last October.
