The time has come to start rankings of the 41 states we covered this football season. 

To say I’m overwhelmed with the work that comes along with this is an understatement.

We had Student Section of the Week for over 10 weeks and that helped us determine who had the best Student Section and which one wanted it more.

Just showing up in large crowds isn’t enough. It might fool other outlets that don’t cover Student Sections, but not us. We have to know how bad you want and marketing is key. 

You will see top-notch Student Sections miss out at the top spot, but we kept saying it over and over and over again, in order to be considered number one, you have to win the Student Section of the Week title. Otherwise, what is the point of having that contest?!

I know Student Sections complain, but remember it’s thousands of Student Sections and only me. Social media is your friend if used correctly.

This is our first year covering Student Sections in Alaska, so we hope we were accurate.

This state doesn’t go crazy on social media when showing off its school spirit. We know they’re there as they pop up every now and then. 

The Alaska Football Student Section Champion will continue voting as they get closer to a National Championship, which will come with a Banner for showing-off purposes!

So, let’s see who made the list and who is the best in Alaska


1. Juneau Douglas/Thunder Mountain

This Student Section won one of the Student Section of the Week. Makes sense for the states best football team.

When you have one of the best football teams in the Nation, you need to have one of the best Football Student Section and that is why the Juneau Douglas/Thunder Mountain is the Alaska Football Student Section of the Year!

2. Soldotna

Soldotna doesn’t show off their student sections that much, but they’ll let you know when they show up. Their prep work is amazing. 

3. Chugiak

One of the few Student Sections that we actually saw a photo of. Very good crowd and their football ain’t bad either.

4. Eagle River

Eagle River football team battled and their Student Section hung with them throughout the year.

5.  South Anchorage

The leaders of South Anchorage might be one of the best out there in Alaska. Very informative about every game. Wouldn’t mind seeing this Student Section show off their school spirit on Instagram.

6. West Anchorage Nest

7. Bartlett of Anchorage

8. Lathrop of Fairbanks

9. Homer

10. Seward

11. Colony of Palmer

12. North Pole

13. Nikiski

14. Wasilla

15. Davis East of Anchorage

16. Palmer

17. Service of Anchorage

18. Reddington of Wasilla

19. Dimond of Anchorage

20. Houston of Big Lake
