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 16 states as well as a Watch List for 21 states. We now head to Oregon!

Oregon has some great Student Section, but you can’t find a run away Student Section in this state. It’s pretty evenly matched. Perhaps that will change this fall.

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 Oregon, it’s the West Linn Student Section. This Student Section was not happy with their ranking last season and let me know about it. They feel like they can take the top spot. If they want that top spot, they better show it on social media or it’s back to that same spot they didn’t like.

Will West Linn prove me wrong? Let’s check out the rankings.


  1. West Salem Titans Mafia (2021 Final Rank: 4)

This Student Section wants to be the best more than the rest. They show off their school spirit on social media constantly. There might be large Student Sections in Oregon, but the Titans Mafia wants this and deserves this.
