 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee reserve linebacker Shane Reveiz, son of former NFL kicker Fuad Reveiz, will need surgery to treat an unspecified heart condition.
``Our prayers go out to him,'' Volunteers coach Phillip Fulmer said Wednesday. ``Our prayers go out to his family, the doctors. He'll require some surgery. To what degree, we're not sure just yet.''
Reveiz, a Farragut native whose older brother Nick also plays linebacker for the Vols, is the second Tennessee athlete to have a heart condition discovered this month during a round of free echocardiogram tests provided by the school for all athletes. Basketball player Duke Crews was benched indefinitely on Friday with an unspecified heart condition.
``Here we are doing something proactively for the health of our young men, and we find something very significant that could be saving a young man's life,'' Fulmer said. ``I'm really proud of our medical staff for getting that done.''
