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 started with the smaller schools (1A, 2A, 3A) around SWLA. Patrick's Power Rankings happens every Wednesday at 8:30am on Mikey O in the Morning. Last week, Patrick power ranked local pizza joints.

Patrick's SWLA 1A, 2A, & 3A High School Football Power Rankings:

5.  Iota Bulldogs (Last Year: 13-1)

4.  Kinder Yellow Jackets (7-5)

3.  Oberlin Tigers (10-3)

2.  Lake Charles College Prep Trailblazers (11-2)

1.  Notre Dame Pioneers (15-0)

Honorable Mention:  Welsh Greyhounds (11-4)

Next week, we will power rank the larger high school (4A, 5A) football teams in SWLA.

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