COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina is down to one college football all-star game.

The Medal of Honor Bowl in Charleston said Thursday it had hired the founder of the College All-Star game in Greenville, David Wyatt, for its organization. Wyatt says his move means there's no need to organize the Upstate game in 2015.

The Medal of Honor Bowl was played for the first time this past January at the Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium. It featured NFL draft-eligible players from all five of college football's power conferences.

Wyatt says his work will include developing a leadership conference and coordinating a business mentor program that participating players can use.

The Medal of Honor Bowl is in the second year of a five-year agreement with Citadel.
