2007 looks to be a put up or shut up year for the Paris Wildcats, after two seasons of near misses…
Busy summer for Fields
"I'm staying around here doing my thing," Fields said. "I get up early and workout. I go to work, and when I'm done I workout again in the afternoon. I'm always doing something."
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound prospect is the lone pure cornerback in the current Aggie Class of 2008. The first-team all-district performer as a junior continues to push himself to get better for his senior season and beyond.
"I'm working hard twice a day to get better. In sports, you have to be improving all the time," Fields said. "I'm really focusing on improving my speed and quickness, and I'm also trying to get my overall body strength up as well."
With the pure cornerback position being thin in Texas in 2008, Fields continues to hear from a list of impressive schools despite remaining solidly committed to the Aggies.
"I hear from schools all the time," Fields said. "LSU, OU, Baylor, Wisconsin, and of course A&M stay in touch quite a bit."
Despite the heavy interest by a long list of suitors, Fields says he's very content being a Texas A&M commit.
"I'm very happy with my commitment to A&M," Fields said. "I'm really looking forward to getting down there and playing with Keon (Furtch)."
Fields is trying to clear his busy schedule to attend this weekend's big Game Night Camp at Texas A&M, where a big group of elite prospects and commitments have been invited to Kyle Field for the July 20th event. Many of the state's top prospects of 2008 and 2009 are expected to attend.
"I'm supposed to make it down there, but it will be a last second decision for me," Fields. "I'm still trying to clear my schedule and make the trip. Hopefully I can make it."
Teammate and fellow A&M commit Keon Furtch will not be in town for the camp, as he will be in Las Vegas competing in a basketball tournament with his AAU team.
Fields is looking forward to a big senior season for the Paris High Wildcats.
"I think we'll build on last year's success," Fields said. "Our defense is going to be great and will keep us in every game. Our offense is talented but young. They will need to step it up, but I'm confident they will."
