2023: Reavis enjoyed a standout season while lining up at safety and, primarily, strong-side linebacker. In 17 games, he registered 59 defensive tackles (five for a loss), three sacks, one interception, one pass knockdown, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He also made six special teams tackles. Reavis registered his first CFL interception on Sept. 15 against the visiting Edmonton Elks. He recorded two sacks against the host B.C. Lions on Sept. 29. He produced a career-high eight defensive tackles on June 24 against the host Calgary Stampeders and matched that total in the Roughriders’ next game, against the visiting Elks. He also had five five-tackle games, including three in a row to conclude the season.

 

PRO: Reavis was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2018. In December of that year, he played in four NFL games with the Jaguars. In his NFL debut (Dec. 2, 2018 versus the Indianapolis Colts), he recorded one tackle while receiving 14 special teams snaps. He also had special teams snaps totals of 13 (Dec. 16 versus Washington), 11 (Dec. 23, Miami) and 18 (Dec. 30, Houston). Reavis was among the Jaguars’ final cuts on Aug. 31, 2019. On Nov. 5, 2019, he signed with the Atlanta Falcons and was placed on their practice squad. Reavis signed a reserve-future contract with Atlanta on Dec. 30, 2019 and was released on Aug. 13 of the following year. On April 1, 2022, he signed with the Roughriders, only to be released on June 5 of that year. Reavis was re-signed by Saskatchewan on Aug. 22, 2022 and registered four special teams tackles over four games before suffering a torn Achilles tendon in the Oct. 29 regular-season final at Calgary. Reavis signed a new contract with the Roughriders on April 1, 2023 and recovered from his injury in time to enjoy a breakout 2023 season.

 

COLLEGE: Reavis played at Virginia Tech (2014), East Mississippi Community College (2015) and Marshall (2016-17). After transferring to East Mississippi, he appeared on the popular show Last Chance U. In 2015, he recorded 40 defensive tackles, eight pass breakups and two interceptions. Over two seasons and 21 games at Marshall, he produced 132 defensive tackles (five for a loss) and one interception.
