Darst is also aware of the Red Devils' other offensive weapons.
Senior back Jarrell Green has 394 rushing yards and four scores, while senior fullback K.K. Goodman has added 272 yards and eight TDs.
Sophomore Deonte Scruggs has added 273 passing yards, with three more scores.
"The thing that scares me about them is that they're not just the Jalen Jones show," Darst said.
"They have a couple of kids that run the ball well and their quarterback seems to be throwing the ball better this year when they need to throw it.
"They have a lot of weapons and that makes them even tougher than last year. We have to prepare for everything they do offensively. If we go out and try to key on Jalen, they'll hurt us with their other players."
The Big Blacks' offense isn't too shabby with bruising sophomore Cody Mitchell leading the way.
Mitchell is the seventh-leading rusher in Class AAA with 655 yards on 76 tries (8.6 avg.) and eight touchdowns.
Senior Chase Walton is also a threat in the backfield with 298 yards and five scores on 42 totes. Walton also leads the team with 219 receiving yards and four scores on nine catches.
Junior quarterback Aden Yates (30-of-42, 593 yards, six TDs) is also a threat that the Red Devils must account for.
"They run the ball well and then they get you sucked in on the run and then they throw it over you," Souk said. "Those are the type of things we have to prepare for. When you're playing a team of their caliber, you have to expect anything and we're preparing for that.
"Hopefully we can be successful in what we're trying to do. As long as the kids execute and do what they're supposed to do, and react to things they way they're supposed to react, we can live with the consequences of what happens in the game, whether it is a win or a loss."
