Rams At A Glance

In his 10 years on the job, coach B.J. Ivey has built Riverview into arguably West Florida’s top program, reaching the Class 8A state final in 2016. Now, he has a prized recruit in 6-4 JR Malachi Wideman (think Deion Sanders), who brought pals LeBron James and Dwyane Wade to their feet at this summer’s Fab 48 tournament in Las Vegas while playing on the same travel team as Wade’s son. The lone senior in the rotation, 6-4 SR Tyrus Jackson, is a four-year varsity letterman, and shot 43 percent from 3-point range as a junior. An ultra-talented 2021 class includes 6-6 SO Jayven Millien, 6-8 SO John Solomon and 6-4 SO David Mazon. The young Rams, already committed to play in the 2019 City of Palms, struggled last season after Ivey suffered a torn Achilles tendon.
