I was wondering when a student section from San Diego would finally take the student section title?
Well, wonder no more and leave to the Loud Crowd to end that streak.
It almost didn’t happen as this was our closest race between four student sections.
In the end, the Loud Crowd of Carlsbad snuck by and took the SoCal Student Section title for the week.
Let’s see how our SoCal finalists did this week.
The Ramona Rowdy Rams are a brand new student section. Normally it takes times for a new student section to build, but they have worked the social media market quite well and have branded themselves well.
The Rowdy Rams showed their love on the road as the Ramona of Riverside defeated Patriot of Riverside 20-0 in a River Valley League play.
Expect the Rowdy Rams to become an elite Inland Empire powerhouse.
The Servite Asylum, which represented Orange County, came in with a unique theme, by rocking a white button shirt and black tie on Coach Troy Thomas night.
Everything was perfect to a T, as in T-Bone, Coach Thomas nickname. They maxed out Coach Thomas max bench press weight.
It was a fun and electric night for The Asylum despite Servite of Anaheim 35-0 loss to rival Mater Dei of Santa Ana.
Representing the Los Angeles region, the Oxnard 12th Man stepped up for their city rival game against Pacifica of Oxnard in the Battle on Gonzales Street
The Yellowjackets and the 12th Man took Gonzales Street over in their 24-14 victory. The 12th Man had one of the best signs in the southland. This rivalry game was off the hook.
In the end, the Carlsbad Loud Crowd took the crown with close to 3,000 voters on Sunday.
The Loud Crowd came in for a big Avocado League matchup against the top team in San Diego, Torrey Pines of San Diego.
The game went to overtime and Carlsbad almost took it, but the Falcons prevailed with a 35-28 victory.
The Loud Crowd rocked it with their purple and the streamers were everywhere. It was a fantastic evening and for that, the Carlsbad Loud Crowd is your Week 6 SoCal Student Section of the Week.
I spoke to the Loud Crowd and asked what it took to be SoCal best this past weekend.
You guys are the Week Six So Cal Student Section of the week, beating out the Oxnard 12th Man, Servite Asylum and the Ramona Rowdy Rams. What did it take to stand out as one of the best in Southern California?
Loud Crowd: Standing out as one of the best student sections in SoCal takes lots of hard work. Our ASB class is always working hard to add new things and improve our student section. We are extremely lucky to have such a great administration as they are the reason to why we have so many opportunities to do the things that make us stand out. Also, the participation of our whole student body is fantastic because without them, we would not have a student section.
What is your most memorable game you have ever attended as a member of the student section?
Loud Crowd: The most memorable game that I have attended as part of the student section was our last game against Torrey Pines, themed “Out of this World.” The overall energy of the game was crazy because our team came back from two scores down and went into overtime. Even though we did not win, the game was exciting to watch and the whole crowd was into it.
Loud Crowd: My favorite theme is the pink game for breast cancer awareness. It’s my favorite because we have a giant powder toss, where we throw pink powder in the air all at once.
Loud Crowd: My favorite chant is our “Lancer Territory” chant. One of our Loud Crowd leaders made a song that goes along with the chant that I play through the speakers, and it really gets the crowd going.
What’s your least favorite chant that you hear from the other side of the stadium/gym?
Loud Crowd: We typically don’t hear too much from the opposing crowd because we try to focus all of our energy on supporting our own team. But we don’t like any chant that is directed toward the officials or our own team/student section with a negative demeanor.
Outside of you guys, is there one student section that you have seen or heard about where you think, “Man, that is a good student section?”
Loud Crowd: There are a lot of great student sections in San Diego, but one that stood out was the San Marcos High School “Blue Crew.” We played them at their home field and they had great energy throughout the whole game. They were really good!
