The University of South Carolina Upstate remembered student-athlete Mills Sproull during a dedication ceremony at the County University Soccer Stadium Saturday, Sept. 10, just before kickoff of the Spartan men’s soccer game against Gardner-Webb.

A bench was placed in memory of the 20-year-old Birmingham, Ala., native who died October 11, 2015 following a car accident that claimed the lives of three other USC Upstate students and left one student injured.

The University also debuted its new scoreboard named for Sproull that was made possible by a gift from an anonymous donor and a friend of the Sproull family.

Sproull is survived by his parents, Joy Martin and Horace Miller Sproull, III; siblings, Wimberly Sproull, Sparks Sproull and Holly Sproull, all of Birmingham; maternal grandparents Joan and Jack Martin of Florence, Ala.; aunts and uncles, Jim Sproull, Hunt Sproull, Barbara Snow, Eva Andrews, Jay Martin and Jill Lunsford; and many cousins.
