ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - A former Carolina Panther, businessman and sheriff’s deputy has ended his quest to become York County’s top law enforcement officer.

The Herald of Rock Hill (https://bit.ly/24qVj0p ) reports Michael Scurlock Jr. announced in a Facebook post Saturday he had failed to collect enough signatures to get on the November ballot as a petition candidate.

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 and was a deputy, public information officer and crime prevention officer at the sheriff’s office before resigning two years ago.

The decision means the winner of the June 14 Republican primary - Kevin Tolson or John Williams - will run unopposed in the general election.
