Reveiz brothers lead FHS wrestling

Breaking down the Farragut High School wrestling team by age alone, “we’re young in the light weights and we’re older in the heavier weights,” head coach Joe Knox said of his 2005-06 squad.

The “older, heavier” guys are led by defending 215-class Division I state champ Nick Reveiz, a senior just coming off a standout season as an Admiral football team linebacker/fullback.

“Of course, Nick’s now looking to repeat and be the second two-time state champ from Farragut,” Knox said. “It would be a pretty big accomplishment. I know it’s one of his goals.”

As for the champ’s style, “Nick’s out there in your face all the time, he’s kinda a brawler,” Knox said. “He goes and gets ya,’ he’s real good on his feet.”

Shane Reveiz, a junior who last season qualified for state at 189 and was one victory away from placing among the six best in Tennessee, joins sophomores Daniel Turner (112) and A.J. Farinella (125) as Farragut’s other returning state qualifiers from last season.

“Last year was [Shane’s] first year, he just kinda got his feet wet,” Knox said, adding that both Reveiz brothers are “really hard-working kids.” Both are expected to wrestle in the same weight classes as last year.

Turner, Region 2 runner-up last season, was one victory away from placing at state. Farinella qualified for state as a freshman. “A.J.’s been working hard, we’ll see what happens this year,” Knox said.

Other Farragut wrestlers are: junior Joe Perez (103); freshman Clayton Guinn (119); senior Matt Scaperoth (130); sophomore Demi Klonaris (135); senior Anthony Peters (140); seniors Spencer Grieco and Alan Leuthold (145); senior Lee Travis (152); junior Alan Cameron (160); sophomore Will Pearman and senior Brandon Besola (171) and senior Brandon Lazarus (275).

Knox said Scaperoth has “shown a lot of improvement” while praising Leuthold for being “a big leader.”

Farragut assistant coach is Lee Cottrell. The Admirals’ first big tournament test is Dec. 16-17 at the Bradley Invitational at Bradley Central High School in Cleveland.
