COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- The new high school football rankings are out after 4 weeks of the 2019 season, and only one Southwest Florida team is in the Top 10 on any divisional level.

But a few others are close.

In Class 6A, the Naples Eagles are ranked 4th after starting the season 4-0.

Charlotte was ranked in the 6A poll last week but fell out of the top 10 after a rough loss. They're currently just out of the Top 10 but still getting votes.

In Class 3A, the Bishop Verot Vikings in Fort Myers are very close to the Top 10.

In Class 2A, First Baptist Academy in Naples is as well.

Heading into Week 5, the Ida Baker Bulldogs and the Dunbar Tigers matchup is our Fox 4 Game of the Week. We'll have live coverage at Dunbar High School previewing the game this Friday, and we'll also have all the highlights on Fox 4 News at 11.
