CHESAPEAKE — The newest foursome was welcomed into the fold Friday when Chesapeake High School inducted the 2014 Class of their Athletic Hall of Fame.

The foursome includes Randy Bone, Aaron Rice, and twin brothers Brian and Scott Davis.

Bone was a standout fullback for the 1975 Ohio Valley Conference championship team, the school’s first in 14 years.

Bone led Lawrence County in scoring and was first team All-OVC, first team All-Southest District including the Class A Back of the Year, and first team All-Ohio.

Rice was a standout in football, wrestling and baseball. He was second team all-district in Class AA in football and honorable mention All-Ohio.

Rice was also a league champion in his weight class in wrestling and was an outstanding infielder on the baseball team. He started at Marshall University as a freshman was on the 1981 Herd team that won the Southern Conference championship, the last time Marshall has won a league title in baseball.

Rice is currently a teacher coach at Chesapeake.

The Davis brothers — sons of the Panthers’ Hall of Fame football coach Phil Davis — were three sports standouts in football, wrestling and track.

Both were first team All-Ohio, first team All-Southeast District in Division IV and special mention All-Ohio. They were conference champions in wrestling.
