Fields was named to the Post-Gazette Fabulous 22
Aliquippa pays for the WIPIAL AA championship today.
College talk: More Division I colleges have started to take notice of Fields and he is likely to get scholarship offers in the future. He plans to visit Ohio State this weekend with teammate Dravon Henry.
The scoop: Fields has been dominant on both offense and defense. He has turned into one of the top linemen at Aliquippa in recent years and is one of the reasons the Quips have two 1,000-yard rushers this season. On defense, Aliquippa has allowed only 42 points all season heading into Friday's WPIAL Class AA championship game.
Most memorable moment this season? When we beat Beaver Falls on [Root Sports] TV.
Favorite class? English.
Best part of Thanksgiving? Eating with all my family.
You'd like to throw something at? Probably Kobe Bryant. I don't really like him.
Career, if not an athlete or coach? A teacher.
People might be surprised to know that . . . I like to eat buffalo chicken every day.

Prospect watch: Aliquippa’s Jaleel Fields

6-foot-2, 275 pounds, DT, Aliquippa
Jaleel Fields spent Friday opening holes at right tackle for classmates Dravon Henry and classmate Terry Swanson as Aliquippa rushed for 505 yards in a 34-7 victory over Washington in the WPIAL Class AA final at Heinz Field.
Fields has made his mark, however, at defensive tackle. That’s why he spent Saturday on an unofficial visit to Ohio State.
Fields has a dozen sacks and about 80 tackles this season, one in which Aliquippa has dominated opponents. The Quips (13-0) have allowed only 49 points through 13 games with six shutouts.
After winning their second consecutive WPIAL Class AA championship — Aliquippa has a WPIAL-record 15 titles — Fields and Henry were excited about going to a major-college rivalry game Saturday. They visited Columbus to see Ohio State beat arch-nemesis Michigan, 26-21, to finish an undefeated season.
“It’s very exciting for me,” Fields said. “It’s a good atmosphere and a great coaching staff with Urban Meyer.”

PIAA Playoffs: Quips strike early and often in rout
December 1, 2012 12:05 am
Aliquippa raced to a huge first-quarter lead and put in most of its backups midway through the second quarter as the Quips rolled to a 51-15 win against District 9 champion Karns City in a PIAA Class AA quarterfinal Friday at Central Valley.
Aliquippa ran for 428 yards, including four touchdowns of at least 60 yards from Henry (63 yards), Jyier Turner (69), Malik Shegog (60) and freshman Kaezon Pugh (64).

Hope Fields does not hold this against MSU. Aliquippa is defeated by the Wyomissing Spartans
Wyomissing claims second consecutive PIAA Class AA title for District 3
ERIC F. EPLER, The Patriot-News, December 15, 2012 12:30 p.m.
HERSHEY – Aliquippa failed to take full advantage of six red zone opportunities Saturday afternoon, which granted Wyomissing just enough time to conclude its perfect season.
Mason Smith's 36-yard touchdown run with 11:18 remaining proved to be the difference as the Spartans upended the gritty Quips 17-14 in the PIAA Class AA championship at Hersheypark Stadium.

HERSHEY, Pa. -- The mighty Aliquippa High School football team will come home without a state championship.
Aliquippa was knocked off by Wyomissing, 17-14, in the PIAA Class AA championship game this afternoon at Hersheypark Stadium. Mason Smith's 36-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter gave Wyomissing the win. Aliquippa came into the game with a 15-0 record.
Wyomissing had three first-half turnovers and Aliquippa took a 14-7 lead at the break. The Quips scored on their first possession after a Wyomissing fumble. Dravon Henry scored the touchdown on a 1-yard run, and Terry Swanson ran for the two-point conversion.

Blue Chip Chat with ... Jaleel Fields, Aliquippa
August 19, 2013 12:04 am
By Mike White / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Fields has been a starter since his freshman year and made the Post-Gazette Fabulous 22 as a junior. A force on offense and defense, Fields is one of the reasons Aliquippa is considered the team to beat in Class AA of the WPIAL.
Fields is being recruited by Division I colleges as a defensive lineman. He has narrowed his choices to Pitt, West Virginia, Cincinnati, Purdue and Temple. He said he does not have a favorite.
