Marlee Gambrell 1945-2016
Belton-Honea Path High School has lost a legend and true friend.  Our beloved Marlee Gambrell passed away on November 20, 2016.

Marlee Fields Gambrell served as the longtime BHP football team manager and served for 564 games since 1966.

In 2004 Marlee was the only Bear carried off the field by the team after their state championship.  He was inducted into the BHP Hall of Fame in 2015, and he was named Region 3A Assistant Coach of the Year also in 2015.

Marlee was a kind, loyal, hard-working, gentle soul who will never be forgotten at our school and in our community.  We are all better human beings because of his friendship and his example.  Rest in Peace, Sweet Marlee.
