Reveiz duo lead FHS


NASHVILLE — Getting a late start on the wrestling season due to football and having his tonsils taken out, Nick Reveiz apparently hasn’t missed a beat in the 215-pound wrestling class.

The defending Division I state champ at 215, Reveiz saw his first competition during the annual Father Ryan Invitational last weekend — and barely gave up a point in wiping the floor again stellar state competition.


Winning the event with four match victories following a bye, “He dominated the competition … the only points scored on him is when he let people up,” FHS head coach Joe Knox said.

The talented senior was one of three Admirals to place in the top six of what Knox said was “probably thirty” schools participating.

Junior Shane Reveiz took third-place at 189, highlighted by defeated the state’s No.4-ranked Michael Ligon of Rossview along the way. His only loss came in overtime.

Finishing sixth at 125, sophomore A.J. Farinella “wrestled the best tournament he’s ever wrestled,” Knox said. “His bracket was loaded with state-placers [2005].”

At 119, Daniel Turner was one match away from placing in the top six. “He wrestled real well, I was pleased with his performance,” Knox said, adding that Turner beat Jordan Harless of Karns, No.4-ranked in the state at 112, during a dual meet Wednesday, Jan. 4, at KHS.

Senior heavyweight Brandon Lazarus was one win away from placing in the top six, but hurt his knee in the semifinals. “He should be okay,” Knox said.

At 140, Spencer Grieco was also one match away from placing.
