Northwestern’s very own Rafie Fields works in the Medill Chicago Newsroom as the Technology Training and Operations Manager. Little do the students there know, his mind for basketball is one of a kind.

The graduate of George Westinghouse College Prep High School is the Head Basketball Coach of his alma mater.

Once a powerhouse of Chicago high school basketball programs, Coach Fields aims to take them back to those days in his first season at the helm.
