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.
