High school football is near and dear to everyone in SWLA. The season starts in a few weeks, and we thought it would be fun to Power Rank the local teams.

This week, we're ranking the bigger schools (4A, 5A) around SWLA. Patrick's Power Rankings happens every Wednesday at 8:30am on Mikey O in the Morning.

Last week, Patrick power ranked the smaller high school football teams in SWLA (1A, 2A, 3A).

Patrick's SWLA Power Rankings 4A & 5A High School Football Teams:

5. Washington Marion

4. Sam Houston Broncos

3. Eunice Bobcats

2. Barbe Buccaneers

1. Lessville Wampus Cats

Honorable Mention: Sulphur Golden Tors

Next week, we will power rank the Southland Conference, and we'll predict McNeese's win/loss record.

We'll continue our football series for another three weeks with the SEC Conference and the NFC South division.
