Steven Mack Satterfield

October 3, 1937 — February 18, 2023

Steven Mack Satterfield, University of South Carolina quarterback, former football coach, and athletic director, passed away on Saturday, February 18th. Born October 3, 1937, he was 85.

His early life was a consistent highlight reel of athletic accomplishment. He was a three-sport star (football, basketball, baseball) at Greer High School and inducted into the Greer High Athletic Ring of Honor. He continued his playing career at the University of South Carolina where he lettered three years and started the 1959 season. He received his BS in Secondary Education/English University of South Carolina And Masters in Secondary Administration from Appalachian State University (1968). After graduating, he also owned and operated Camp Indian Valley with his brother Jimmy, coached various high school teams including Edmunds, Wade Hampton, and Sumterwhere he won The State Championship. He also coached at the college level as the quarterback and running back coach at Clemson, and head football coach and athletic director at Wofford. 

For 49 years he was dedicated to his church, First Baptist of Spartanburg, and held various leadership roles including deacon and director of his Sunday School department.

Son of Baptist Preacher, Walt Satterfield (Grace), Steve and his wife Barbara, would argue their greatest achievement was not on the field, but through the birth of each of their childrengrandchildren and great grandchildren. He married his high school sweetheart, Barbara Woodall Satterfield, and they were married 60 years. They had three children, Keleigh Satterfield Collins (Craig) Greenville, SC ; Susan Satterfield Frehse (John) Bronxville, NY and Steven Mack Satterfield, Jr (predeceased 2009) (Jenifer Green).  They also had eleven grandchildren: Jessica Satterfield Gunnell (Frankie), Stefani Satterfield Thomas (McKinley), Grace Collins Brock (Timothy), John Craig Collins, Mack Satterfield Collins, Joshua Stephen Collins, Hannah Catherine Collins, Faith Elizabeth Collins, John Wood Frehse, Jr., Georgia Grace Frehse, Fulton Max Frehse and 4 great grandchildren: Isabella Grey Gunnell, Wyatt Christopher Gunnell, Rayne LaRue Brock, Elise Ann Brock.
