Defending Division II state champion St. Thomas More moves up to third in Class 4A with Neville dropping to fourth and Parkview Baptist fifth. The Cougars of Jim Hightower posted a comprehensive 45-0 win over Lafayette High to open the season.

Defending Division IV state champion Karr retains the top spot in 4A after a road win at St. Paul’s fueled by a play-making defense. Warren Easton is a strong second after clobbering Jesuit. Plaquemine, Teurlings Catholic, McDonogh 35, Carencro and Lutcher round out the top 10.

Defending Division I state champion Evangel remains the top-ranked team in Class 5A. The Eagles scored a very impressive 14-6 road win at East St. Louis, IL.

John Curtis Christian is still second after a big win over Landry-Walker while West Monroe is third after dismissing talented John Ehret. Rummel is fourth after a shutout of Gulfport (Miss.).

Parkway is fifth but the Panthers lost blue-chip quarterback Justin Rogers to an apparent dislocated knee in a win over Booker T. Washington Friday night. Scotlandville moves up to sixth, Zachary is now seventh and Ruston cracks the top 10 at No. 8 after a huge road win at Neville. Acadiana is ninth and Destrehan moves into the top ten at No. 10.

University High keeps the top spot in 3A after an impressive 35-0 shutout victory over Mandeville. De La Salle holds strong in second after winning at South Lafourche with St. Charles Catholic third, though the Comets lost star quarterback Lloyd Nash to a broken clavicle in a blanking of Chalmette.

West Feliciana is fourth in 3A after beating East Feliciana and St. James is fifth after rallying past West St. John. Sterlington, Iowa, Jena, Berwick and Loranger round out the top 10.

Defending Division III state champion Riverside is perhaps the most convincing top-ranked team in the state, continuing to control Class 2A after crushing Southern Lab. Amite is second after a solid win over Country Day with idle Notre Dame third. Many is fourth and St. Helena is fifth after cruising to a 50-0 win over Jewel Sumner. Kinder is sixth with Catholic-New Iberia seventh, Welsh eighth, Calvary Baptist ninth and Ferriday cracking the top 10 at No. 10 after a big win over Alexandria.

Haynesville maintains the top spot in Class 1A with defending 1A champion Logansport second. Ouachita Christian is up to third with Kentwood fourth and West St. John fifth. Oak Grove is sixth with St. Mary’s seventh. Oberlin is eighth with Covenant Christian ninth and Vermilion Catholic tenth.
