Draft Scout Carlos Fields Jr. News
05/07/14 - Five players who should be on Oakland's draft radar...LB Carlos Fields, Winston-Salem State: In the later rounds, a linebacker who is flying under the radar is Fields, but he's worth targeting for Oakland. Fields was voted CIAA Defensive Player of the Year after his junior and senior seasons, leading the team in tackles both years and earning All-American honors. He displays natural explosion and play speed on tape with a nose for the ball, showing heady instincts and anticipation to put himself in the correct position to make the play. Fields isn't a strong technician at this point and will overpursue at times, but he plays alert and competitive with the intensity needed for the next level. He will face a big jump in competition coming from the Division-II level, but has a nose for the ball and athletic traits that should translate well. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/07/13 - 2013 CIAA CO-DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Carlos Fields, Winston-Salem State, SR, 6'2 220, Math Education, Henderson, NC...Carlos Fields was selected as Co-Defensive Player of the Year, along with St. Augustine’s Chaz Robinson.

11/24/13 - Winston-Salem State shook off a stressful week of being in the national limelight for all the wrong reasons in time to beat Slippery Rock 27-20 on Saturday afternoon in the Division II football playoffs. Eight days after the Rams' starting quarterback, Rudy Johnson, was attacked by Virginia State players in a bathroom during a luncheon the day before the CIAA championship, he did enough to keep the Rams' season going.
Johnson was the only captain Coach Connell Maynor sent out for the coin toss to open the game. While he didn't play a perfect game - three of his interceptions led to The Rock's three touchdowns - he did enough to keep the season going. Thanks to the Rams' defense, which is ranked No. 1 in Division II, they advanced to Saturday's second-round game against top-seed Shepherd (10-0). Winston-Salem held Slippery Rock to a season-low 210 yards. - AP Sports
