Name: Jaleel Fields
High School: Aliquippa
Background info: Jaleel Fields is one of the top offensive/defensive linemen in the state and already has college football coaches drooling. One of reasons he’s such a prospect is his footwork and pure athleticism and he’s showing it on the basketball court now. His season started late because Aliquippa went to the state championship game but he’s now leading the Quips into the basketball playoffs. He scored 13 to lead Aliquippa to a 69-60 opening round playoff win over Avonworth .
Quotes from Coach Bobby Williams: “Jaleel is still getting completely into basketball shape after football but I expect a lot from him and he’s coming through. He really has good hands and he’s making the free throws when we need them.”
