D.J. Park, a former football player for South Carolina and the Toronto Argonauts, has passed away at 29.

He was praised for his character and talent by Gamecocks coach Shawn Elliott and his sister Breana.

“Saddened to hear about the passing of former Gamecock OL DJ Park. DJ was an awesome individual with a huge heart. You will be missed my friend,” Elliott wrote on X.

Park was a standout player in high school and college, playing for the Gamecocks from 2013 to 2017 before briefly joining the Argonauts in 2018.

His former high school coach mentioned that Park had been facing health challenges recently.

“To KNOW DJ/Joseph Park was to LOVE him,” sister Breana Park wrote. “I could write a novel but I’ll just leave it at that for now. I’ll miss you forever but at least you can rest easy now.”
