Big Fish adjusts to small field

By Ferran Lucero: PNT Correspondent

Dustin Fish has become a crowd favorite with the Wichita, Kan., Stealth of Arena2 Football. After a quarterback sack, the former Eastern New Mexico University standout flexes, places his hands on his hips and entertains the fans with his own rendition of the Riverdance.
AF2 is a different game than Fish played at ENMU, where he was a two-time All-Lone Star Conference offensive tackle and a four-year starter for the Greyhounds.
The field is only 50 yards long, the uprights are 9-feet wide and there are eight players per team.
The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Fish plays both sides of the ball for the Stealth, who are off to a 2-0 start.
He tallied seven tackles in 13 games with the Stealth last season, including three sacks.
ENMU offensive coordinator Michael Howard said Fish was, “someone you would enjoy coaching … (and) really aggressive.”
After his senior season, Fish played in the Cactus Bowl Division II All-Star game in Kingsville, Texas, under former ENMU coach Don Carthel.
Soon after the bowl game, then Stealth coach Land Jacobson asked Fish to join his team.
His first start was against the Peoria, Ill. Pirates, during a playoff game.
Fish is schedule to graduate from ENMU in December with a degree in university studies.
Two other former Greyhounds were listed on the Stealth roster on the team’s Web site: quarterback Heath Ridenour and linebacker Jimmy Hamilton.
