Which Dallas-Fort Worth area team is going to enter Week 5 with a 4-0 record?

There are a ton of heavyweight matchups to watch in Week 4 as the 2019 Texas high school football season continues, so much so that it’s far too difficult to pick just 10.

Martin, ranked No. 8 in the latest DFW area 6A rankings, is coming off two impressive wins to start the season with an upset over state preseason 6A No. 3 Lake Travis and then Hebron in Week 2. The Warriors were on a bye last week.

After the Warriors started last season 0-3, they look to match 2017’s 3-0 record. Rockwall, No. 5, won the only meeting vs. Martin, last year 73-32. The Yellowjackets have scored at least 50 points in all three games.
