Rewis has been the Ravenwood assistant the past two seasons. His resume includes playing running back at Samford, head coach at Fairview and Heritage in Tennessee and Robert Toombs Academy and Tift Area in Georgia.
Smithson said that there had been about 45 applicants for the position and they took their time to hire a new head coach. He said that he believed that this was an important position that was left vacant when former Bulldog head coach Nick Patterson resigned last month.
Hickman County has a winning tradition, having made it to the playoffs in 2007 and 2008, but only won a couple of games last season.
