Fields one of 2013's best

Eastern High School (Ky.) is known mostly this season for its dominating star, Jon Davis. But there are other prospects on the roster such as Nick Bennett (an Army commit) and sophomore defensive back, Shane Fields.

Eastern High School (Ky.) is known mostly this season for its dominating star, Jon Davis. But there are other prospects on the roster such as Nick Bennett (an Army commit) and sophomore defensive back, Shane Fields.

Shane Fields, at 5-foot-11, 165-pounds, has good size for a high school sophomore. Fields is also a 4.5 forty prospect who has had a nice season despite a recent injury.

"My season is going good," said Fields. "I have five interceptions on the season and three returned for touchdowns. My longest was 50 yards," he said.

Fields has a long way to go as a player, but early on he looks like a division one prospect. "As a go-getter, I try to get better every time out," he said. "I don't mind working hard on my weak points and I stand up and love challenges. I want to check and shutdown the best receivers," he continued.

As a corner, the ability to go one-on-one is paramount and Fields is working to improve that aspect of his game. "I want to get better at my man-to-man pres. I say every player can get better in every area of their game. So I'm working on everything to make myself a better player all-around," he said.

Fields feels like there are a few moments this season that stood out for him.

"I think my best game so far was when we played Fern Creek. I had two interceptions, one for 44 yards and the other for 50 yards and a touchdown," said Fields. Fields also threw a pass for a touchdown in that contest.

Performances like that can help his team reach his goal for the remainder of the season.

"I want my team to have a good playoff run," he said.

At this early stage, Fields hasn't taken any visits and obviously doesn't hold offers, but he's hearing from Kentucky and a few other schools.
