Defensive tackle Jaleel Fields could feel his heartbeat quicken the first time he spotted a college coach this season, a man dressed in Pitt attire during Week 2.

But by the time he played in the state title game Saturday -- surrounded by several coaches from Pitt and Penn State -- the junior lineman out of Aliquippa (Pa.) didn't mind much. With all the recruiting attention he's received, they just started blending in with the crowd.

"I got nervous in the beginning of the year, but it was just like a regular game there," he said. "I didn't let the nerves get to me. I just hope they liked what they saw. I tried my hardest out there."
