(last week's rank indicated in parentheses)

1. PATTERSON (1) -- (4-0) -- Last week, the Lumberjacks defeated Berwick, 59-6. Three-star CB Trevon Stewart continues to make plays all over the field. Stewart scored on a run, a punt return, and a pick six. He's committed to Houston, as is teammate Jaydrick Declouet (three-star WR). Recruiting fans continue to watch Lorenzo Phillips' every move. The four-star linebacker is pledged to Florida, but Houston, LSU and Texas A&M retain hopes of landing the senior. TE Deondre Skinner is one of the top juniors in the state. LB Tremaine Lightfoot has multiple offers. Patterson's defense has surrendered only 18 points this year. This week: Kaplan (2-3)

2. ST. CHARLES CATHOLIC (2) -- (5-0) -- Last week, the Comets defeated 2A Jeanerette, 49-0. Marcus Hall staked SCC to an early 7-0 lead with a 35-yard punt return, according to Brendan Twist of nola.com (Times-Picayune). RB Lazedrick Thompson, a Tulane commit, ran for a nine-yard touchdown and LB Nick Montegut recovered a fumble in the end zone. DB Jeffrey Hall has four interceptions on the year, including two vs. Miller-McCoy Academy and two vs. Northshore. The Comets' defense has allowed a stingy 17 points (less than four per game). DE/LB La'Jaylin Smith is a hard-hitting senior. This week: Donaldsonville (2-3)

3. LORANGER (3) -- (5-0) -- Last week, the Wolves defeated 2A St. Thomas Aquinas, 20-17. QB B.J. Rainey found junior athlete Jeryl Brazil with a fourth quarter TD pass to rally Loranger to a come-from-behind road victory. Rainey also hooked up with WR Jonathan King for two touchdowns, according to lorangerhighschool.net. Brazil - who runs an electronic 4.35 - is committed to LSU. This week: Albany (4-1)

4. AMITE (4) -- (4-1*) -- Last week, the Warriors defeated 4A Franklinton, 35-0. Head coach Alden Foster's squad easily handled the defending Class 4A state champion Demons. Reginald Porter accounted for four touchdowns (two rushing and two passing) and 335 yards of total offense. Chester Brumfield returned a fumble for a 60-yard touchdown, according to the (Baton Rouge) Advocate. Amite's defense was ferocious, yielding only four first downs. LB Juwaan Rogers is ranked as the No. 111 outside linebacker in the nation by Scout.com. Only one opponent (5A Ponchatoula) has scored on the Warriors' defense. *Amite beat Madison Prep in week four, but the game reportedly won't be factored into the LHSAA's playoff power ratings (Madison Prep is a Baton Rouge charter school that isn't a member of the LHSAA). This week: at No. 10 Independence (4-1)

5. LIVONIA (5) -- (5-0) -- Last week, the Wildcats defeated Brusly, 26-20 (three OT). RB Mark Lewis carried 29 times for 109 yards and a touchdown, according to William Weathers of the Advocate.
