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.

Kansas was difficult to figure out this season, but this is our first year covering Kansas and we know we’ll hear from some Student Sections. We probably have a different list next season, but we know we have the number one spot right!

So many great Student Sections in this state. Let’s take a look at our Top 40 and name our state champ!


1. Maize Red Rage

I’ve been following this Student Section for awhile now and it’s been the same. It’s the same energetic group of kids. The Pink Out was the cherry on top. Maize Red Rage is the Kansas Football Student Section of the Year!

2. Blue Valley Northwest

Blue Valley Northwest can pack the stands and bring the heat with their school colors!

3. Andale

The best football team has to have a top-notch Student Section and Andale cover both sides as far as being one of the best. This Student Section can hang with their football team!

4. Douglass Kennel

The Kennel can bark like no other. A very supportive Student Section that shows a crazy amount of school spirit!

5. Bishop Miege

With a solid athletic program, you’re going to have a group of kids that are addicted to winning. Wins on the field and in the stands at Bishop Miege!
