"It's going pretty good right now, and I really like playing more defense," said the 5-10, 200-pounder with good speed and the athleticism that also makes him a force on the basketball court. "You can be more aggressive on defense and it is always more fun to hit guys than be hit. It's that way at fullback too, just less carries."
Stoner, at fullback is blocking more for junior running back David Oku, who many believe will be one of the top running back prospects in the nation in the 2009 recruiting class. Oku already has more than 700 yards rushing on the season
Four games in, Stoner has 17 carries for 64 yards and three touchdowns. On defense he has 12 unassisted tackles and 21 overall. He also has a sack, a fumble caused, and an interception from his safety position. Both he and Oku attended the Oklahoma State-Texas Tech game last Saturday, along with several other Titan teammates.
"It was a good game, and I was glad to see OSU won," said Stoner, who has not hidden the fact he would like to wind up in Stillwater. "Third downs are what really hurt OSU. They needed to get stops on some of those long third downs, but they got the stops at the end.
"I'm still talking with OSU even thought they haven't offered," said Stoner of his recruiting. "Air Force is also talking to me a lot right now."
Stoner, Oku and the rest of the Titans will carry their 4-0 record into a homecoming game on Friday night against district opponent El Reno.
