In 2015, yours truly began covering Student Sections in Orange County, California. We expanded to Southern California in 2017 and last year, we added four more states. This past winter, we expanded to 19 states.
Now, we are going to 40 states. This is still a one-man operation for the most part.
I know that Student Sections have a lot of work to do to get the students to the games to cheer on their classmates and go along with the theme and make sure they don’t cause trouble. These student sections deserve recognition.
We will kick off the Student Section season with Preseason Football Student Section Rankings. REMEMBER, this is a PREVIEW. It is merely a prediction. The real rankings come out in November or December.
If you feel your student section isn’t ranked high enough or not ranked at all, let us know and we’ll keep a close eye on them.
Every week, we will also have Student Section of the Week for each state. Once you win Student Section of the Week, you can’t win it again, but you still have to battle for the top spot in your state and perhaps the Nation as we will also name a Football Student Section National Champion.
So far we have previewed the Top 40 Preseason Football Student Section Rankings in 13 states as well as a Watch List for 11 states. We now head to Oklahoma!
Oklahoma is deep in the Student Section world and they’re serious about it to. Football and Student Sections are a way of life over here. This is going to be a fun state to look at for school spirit.
In each state, we will name one student section to look out for. A student section that doesn’t get talked about a lot by us or others and for OKlahoma, it’s the Shiatook. When we briefly cover football Student Sections in 2020 in Oklahoma, Shiatook was consistent and fantastic. Good football program with a group of students in the stands with a good heart. I hope I get to see more of that from Shiatook.
Will Shiatook be what I thought they were a couple years ago? Let’s find out.
