Former Carolina Panther running for York County sheriff

ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — A former Carolina Panther, businessman and sheriff's deputy is hoping to be York County's top law enforcement officer.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports Michael Scurlock Jr. is running to replace York County Sheriff Bruce Bryant, who announced earlier this month that he will not seek re-election.

Scurlock, a University of Arizona graduate, played in the NFL from 1995-2000. He was a defensive back for the St. Louis Rams for four years before ending his career with the Panthers.

Scurlock had been a deputy, public information officer and crime prevention officer at the sheriff's office before resigning two years ago.

Kevin Tolson, an investigator with the 16th Circuit Solicitor's Office, is also set to be on the November ballot for sheriff.
