Class of 1995
Richie Beckett came to Bethany from Wheeling Park High School, where he helped lead the Patriots to the state semifinals his junior and senior seasons. In addition, he was a two-time regional champion and OVAC record-holder in the 110 hurdles on the track, while also winning a state title in the shuttle hurdle relay.
Once at Bethany, Beckett continued to excel on the gridiron and on the track. He was a four-year letterman as a wide receiver and earned Second Team All-PAC in 1993. He led the PAC with 490 receiving yards in 1994 and finished his career with 93 receptions for 1,241 yards, which both ranked in the top 10 all-time at Bethany at the time, and nine touchdowns.
