Americas HS RB Jack Fields (El Paso, TX) verbally committed to Boise State back in June and put on a show last week in the season opener as he rushed for 184 yards and 2 TDs on 40 carries. The future Bronco has proven that he can be the "workhorse" and carry his team to victory, but will 40 carries be the norm?

"I definitely won't be carrying it that many times in every game," he said. "On offense, we want to stick with what's working and they couldn't stop the run," he added.

"I've been working hard in the weight room and I feel I'm prepared to carry the ball a lot," he stated. "I also had a 45 yard TD and a 30 yard TD called back because of holding."

"The offensive line really did their job. They were blowing guys off the ball," said Fields. "It's your job as a RB to be physical and make someone miss once you get to the second level. Our receivers did a great job of blocking down-field as well."

The Trail Blazers started the season with a bang as they defeated Andress HS by a score of 45-19.

"As a team, we feel great," he said. "We were picked to win district and I think it sends a message to the rest of the district that we're a great team on both offense and defense. I definitely think we can make a strong run in the playoffs, but it's one game at a time. Winning one game at a time is really all that matters."

"We play a school from New Mexico next," said Fields. "Respectfully speaking, we should be able to get some younger guys in the game this week. I think we've got a much better team."

On the recruiting front, the talented RB says he's still 100% committed to Boise State and will be in Boise for his official visit on September 24th.

"I'm going to Boise for the Tulsa game," he said. "I definitely want to see how my future teammates prepare since I know they play at such a high level. I want to see how they approach the game and I might add a little of what they do to my pre-game routine."

"The environment was definitely the biggest thing for me," he said. "It felt like home and a family up there. I'm an outdoors person, so I liked that aspect a lot. It's somewhere I can see myself living for the next 4-5 years."

Jack says it will be an "honor" to play for Boise State and to suit-up each week in the Blue and Orange.

"It feels great and it's honor to be offered a scholarship by them," he said. "They're a great school and Coach Pete is going to develop me as a young man. They also believe they can develop me into a great player."
