Posted: Updated:

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - William "Refrigerator" Perry and the late David "Deacon" Jones are among four voted into the South Carolina Football Hall of Fame.

Receivers Freddie Solomon and Sterling Sharpe were also picked from a group of 13 finalists. The group will be honored at the College All-Star Bowl on Feb. 14 at Furman University.

Perry was a star defensive tackle at Clemson and the Chicago Bears. Jones played at South Carolina State University before becoming one of the NFL's most fearsome pass rushers. He died last June.

Solomon played high school ball in Sumter before moving on to the University of Tampa. He then played 11 seasons in the NFL.

Sharpe played at South Carolina before seven standout seasons with the Green Bay Packers.
