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.

Idaho doesn’t have as many high schools compared to other states, so not a lot of school spirit can be found here…WRONG! Idaho actually has some amazing Student Sections. The top 15-20 Student Sections are extremely solid. Idaho is the sleeper state for school spirit!

So many great Student Sections in this state. Let’s take a look at our Top 30 and name our state champ!


1. Owyhee 

Owyhee is a fantastic Student Section that goes crazy! Red Out worked well for them as it sold me. Owyhee is on top as the Idaho Football Student Section of the Year!

2. Weiser 

One of the few Student Sections that consistently get the cheerleaders in on the Student Section. It’s a small, but mighty Student Section that does great work on social media!

3. Borah Rowdies

The Rowdies were very well-informed about the themes. That Instagram provides all the themes. This Student Section is on point.

4. Nampa Dog House 

This Student Section didn’t get put in the Dog House, they owned it! The themes were fantastic. Toga Night and Pink Out were amazing!

5. Eagle Stang Gang

If you’re in the Eagle Stang Gang Student Section, chances are you had clothes ruined by the powder being thrown. Solid Student Section.
