MARTY WOOLBRIGHT
Tight End
1971-1973
Chapin, SC
Biography
A star quarterback playing for his father Cecil (a former Gamecock letterman) at Chapin, Woolbright was named Captain and MVP of the 1969 Shrine Bowl and Most Valuable Back of the 1970 North-South Game. An ankle injury kept him out against Memphis State and Appalachian State in 1972. Among the highlights of his 1973 season was a touchdown catch from Jeff Grantz in a 41-28 win over Georia Tech. Woolbright was drafted in the seventh round of the 1974 NFL draft by the New York Giants but chose to pursue a career outside of pro football. After his playing career Woolbright went into coaching and was the head man at Clover (1993-2002), Gilbert (1983-92), Columbia (SC) Lower Richland (1979-82) and Charlotte (NC) Ardrey Kell (2007-09).
