Future Bronco Is A Man On A Mission
Americas HS RB Jack Fields (El Paso, TX) signed with Boise State earlier this month as a member of the 2012 recruiting class and is now hard at work preparing for his career on The Blue. The talented RB has become a student of the game and says the possibility of early playing time has driven him to work that much harder. "I got the workout packet from Boise State," he said. "I'm just working right now to prepare myself both physically and mentally for Boise State. I'd say it's going pretty well, but the workouts are intense. I can only imagine how hard it will be once I have the S&C coach there too, but I know I'll be ready." "I think the conditioning is the hardest," he stated. "I never ran before I lift before...it was always the other way around for me. I see why they have so much success now. It's hard to maintain that intensity in the weight room after you've just run for a good bit." "The main thing I'm working to improve is my flexibility," said Fields. "I improved a lot from my junior to senior year, but I need to keep working on it. Becoming much more durable allowed me to take more hits, but I need to keep working on that and my conditioning. A football player has to be able to maintain that explosiveness like Doug Martin and those guys." Early playing time will be up for grabs once the 2012 season rolls around and the future Bronco says that added motivation makes him work that much harder. "The possibility of playing as a true freshman and for one of the best programs in the country continues to motivate me," he said. "I'm going to ask Coach Bhonapha a million questions, stay in the weight room, watch film, and just work hard." "It's going to be awesome to learn from DJ since he also played as a freshman," said Fields. "He has experienced those ups and downs and proven to be a great player. He will help me be the best football player I can be and will help me learn how to read defenses." The biggest difference between his junior and season year? Simply "understanding" the game on a wider scale. "I had a better understanding of football," he said. "I learned how to follow my blocks, watch the offensive line, and became a student of the game. I became much more explosive during my senior year." And Signing Day? "It was a great experience," he said. "It was awesome to make it official and become a Boise State Bronco. We kept it really low-key. Me and my family just went out to a steakhouse and had a good dinner." BroncoCountry.com will continue to have updates on Jack Fields.
