BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Memorial Day weekend was a time for mourning for many Brunswick County high school students. Dozens turned to each other for support after their fellow student died in a car crash Friday.

Isiah Randolph's friends say he had no enemies and was loved by everyone, they say they still can't believe that he's gone.

"I honestly still can't believe it," said his girlfriend, Carrie Trapp. "It's just to hard to believe." She says she got the horrific phone call, within an hour of the fatal wreck.

"I wanted to know if it was true, so I called his cousin and he was just crying and saying my name and I asked is it true and he said yes."  

Randolph was killed after his car crashed on Galloway Road in Bolivia.

His friends, classmates and teammates say they are still in shock. Dozens gathered at the Southport Waterfront Sunday, sharing stories and leaning on one another for support.

"He was everybody's best friend,' said Triston Kinaid who played football with him. "He did whatever it took to keep a smile on people's face."

While friends say the 17-year-old was always cracking jokes and making them laugh, he was also a hard worker, spending a lot of time at his after school job at Subway, and training on the football field.

"He always kept the team up," said Kinaid. 'He had the personality and always said 'come on team, lets go," said teammate De Parker.

They say he would have done anything for anyone, which they say makes his loss even harder to bare.

"He was perfect, he didn't deserve it," said Trapp.
