GeauxPreps.com is diving into Louisiana high school football’s strongest districts by classification. Today, we cover Class 4A with an analysis followed by rankings of each district within the class.
Class 4A has proven to be just as strong to play football in and produces top talent that moves on to the next level. However, one district stands atop the rest and among other higher classification leagues.
According to Fizz Rankings’ numbers, District 5-4A, led by St. Thomas More, averaged a 50.476 power ranking. The top rating was nine points better than the second place district. St. Thomas More dominated last season’s Division II playoffs on its way to the program’s second state championship in four years.
Consistency was a key factor in determining the toughest district for Class 4A. Not only do championships matter but winning percentages, competition played and deep playoff runs play a part in helping to determine the ratings.
Joining St. Thomas More in Class 4A’s strongest league are Carencro and Westage who both made quarterfinal appearances in the non-select playoffs. Teurlings Catholic was a quarterfinalist in the Division IV playoffs while Northside was the lone district member not to make a postseason appearance.
The average final record for the league was 7 wins and 4 losses.
Each district’s ranking will update each season and will take into account all re-classification measures every two years.
