Prolific, prodigious, deep ... however you describe baker's backfield, there's no arguing its efficiency.

Junior McLaughlin has 460 yards and eight touchdowns on 9.2 yards per carry.

Jayson Moore has 419 yards and seven touchdowns on 7.6 yards per carry.

Jalen Ciurleo has 415 yards and five touchdowns on 7.3 yards per carry.

Paired with quarterback Payton Rockwell's 325 yards and four scores, the Gators (5-0) are averaging 342.4 rushing yards per game, an eyebrow-raising stat balanced by 150 passing yards a night on a 65-percent completion rate.

So how do you contain the Gators' ground game? How do you do accomplish something that Vernon, Rutherford, Holmes County, Rocky Bayou and Jay couldn't.

That's the million dollar question facing Phil Tisa, who will take his 3-3 South Walton Seahawks into Doug Griffith Memorial Stadium tonight for a 7 p.m. kickoff.

"We definitely have to try to slow down their running game," Tisa said. "I think you have to try and win the battle up front, try to make them do what they don't want to do. If they want to run it inside, we'll try to make them bounce it outside. If they try to break it outside, we want to contain them and force them up the middle.

"It's just about keeping them off balance, not letting them get too comfortable."

Baker has gotten the better end of the rivalry most recently, winning five of the last six matchups. That includes a 35-9 victory last year, although the four matchups preceding that were single-digit outcomes.

"We've battled each year," Tisa said. "We take pride in this rivalry and it's always a great game."

Baker enters with a 231-79 margin of victory, no opponent playing the Gators to within two possessions.

South Walton enters on the wrong side of a 110-160 point differential, the Seahawks coming off a 31-14 loss at North Florida Christian. Even so, Brunson sees a team to be feared.

"Coach Tisa does a great job and it's probably one the most well-coached teams in Florida," Brunson said.

Brunson said the Gators need to watch the Seahawks' zone read, staying discipline on the the screens and pitches.

Tisa said the key is protecting the ball and keeping Baker's offense off the field.

"No.1 we have to be successful on first down," he said. "We can't put ourselves in second-and-long, third-and-long situations where our offense becomes predictable.

"It's going to be a battle."
