An important figure at Hampden-Sydney for more than 40 years, Reveley was active in Hampden-Sydney athletics, first as a three-sport participant in the late 1930s, and later as a supportive H-SC president from 1963 to 1977.
During his college career, Reveley played football, basketball and baseball and was the 1939 recipient of the Gammon Cup. As a standout baseball pitcher for the Tigers, Reveley hurled what was believed to be the first-ever no-hitter in Tiger baseball history against Lynchburg in 1939.
Following graduation, Reveley attended seminary and taught at Rhodes College before returning to Hampden-Sydney as its president in 1963. During his tenure as College President, Reveley was an enthusiastic supporter of the College's athletics program and one of H-SC's biggest fans. Following his retirement in 1977, he remained a loyal Tiger follower until his death in December 1992.
