"The best way to slow Mercer down is for me to disguise myself as security personnel before their bus pulls in, wait for (Donald) Walker, (Brandon) Ford, and (Cory) Jackson to get off the bus and then hide their helmets," Stonebraker said. "Of course, I could sneak into their locker room and put a voodoo trance on their footballs the night before the game.
"But they have such a margin for error because of their speed, so I don't even know if something like that would really slow them down."
So far, nothing has slowed the Titans.
Ford has 363 yards rushing and six touchdowns while Jackson has 299 yards on the ground and one catch for 67 yards and six combined scores.
Walker may play
They could have another weapon available Friday. Jaggers said Walker, a senior running back who has been out with a hamstring injury, may play. He was Mercer's top rusher last year.
Despite outscoring Lexington Christian and South Laurel 116-6 to open the season, Jaggers said his team is far from perfect. He spent time during last week's open date showing his players exactly how good he thought they weren't.
"I still see a lot of missed tackles and missed blocks. Our running backs and tight ends aren't blocking as well as we need to," Jaggers said. "So we practiced four days last week, and three of the four days all we did was block and tackle. They weren't fun practices. They were short, but we worked very hard.
"I don't think they enjoyed last week as much as they thought they would."
Stonebraker made good on his promise to put younger players in against Lincoln County in last week's, and he isn't changing things this week.
"Our young players put forth a strong effort last week. Zach Hounshell played a tremendous game at tight end. His blocking was about as good as we have ever had," the Garrard coach said. "R.J. Lasoya put in a good effort at cornerback. He is a little undersized right now, as are many of our freshmen, but they are way ahead of the learning curve. Tyler Perkins did a good job at defensive tackle and many of our young linemen had good practices last week.
"There are many of these young players we will continue to go with. As long as they are giving a better effort and playing tougher (than older players), then they deserve to play."
DeBord leads Lions with 57 yards rushing
Quarterback Stephen DeBord has thrown for 269 yards and leads the team with 57 yards rushing. Cameron McCane has 44 yards on the ground and Jared Prewitt has eight catches for 156 yards and has thrown one touchdown.
The Lions face a monumental challenge Friday, but Stonebraker said playing games against teams like Mercer will ultimately pay off the Lions.
"We just have to focus on continuing to get better. We are playing a tougher schedule than anyone in our district," he said. "Hopefully, that will pay off at the end of the year."
Jaggers just wants his team to put in a solid effort against Garrard.
"I'm just worried about us playing hard. If we play hard, we'll play well. If not, we won't look very good," said Jaggers. "We'd better be ready to play. If not, we could stink the place up.
"The good news is, we've won both games by big margins, but we haven't done a lot of things well. It just shows you that if we improve, we can have a really good team by the end of the year."
