We continue our Final Rankings in 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.

I always thought Arizona Student Section gave me it’s best. Like, I thought I wouldn’t find new Student Sections or we have a group of rowdy kids move up in the rankings, but we have some Student Sections going up in the list while some that battled for the top spot last year fell several spots. That’s what happens when you fall asleep on social media, someone will take you spot in Arizona.

So many great Student Sections in this state. Let’s take a look at our Top 40 and give the crown to familiar Student Section!


  1. Highland

Highland went with rinse and repeat this season. The Black Out was amazing, confetti. New year, same result, Highland rules Arizona!

  1. Casteel Stampede 

The many themes this season has made it difficult to figure out which one was my favorite. The Stampede loves to show off their school spirit.

  1. Chandler Blue Crew 

Blue Crew was fire this season…no for real, they had the streamers. Blue Crew always battles and have built a reputation of a solid Student Section in Arizona.

  1. Liberty Uproar

Uproar finished strong and with one of the best football teams in the state, this group has more of a reason to go wild!

  1. Pinnacle Crazies 

Crazies got a lot better on social media this season. I heard a lot about the Crazies in the past and I finally saw what I heard this season.
