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.
When we started covering Student Sections in 2015, it began with only Orange County, California. We expanded in 2017 to Southern California before expanding to other states last year. Southern California has a special place for us.
If Student Sections in SoCal didn’t bring the hype, this idea of National Student Section coverage and competition online would never come to exist. Even if we cover 41 states, we still cover Southern California in five different sections.
We continue with San Diego. We have had a dynasty on our hands in the last few years with the Carlsbad Loud Crowd, winning three in a row before having the steak end by Mt. Carmel Red Sea.
This year we’ve had about five Student Sections battle for the top spot. Some of these Student Sections have worked their social media magic well and showed off their amazing school spirit.
We plan to check out some of these Student Sections in the winter and I hope they don’t come after me with their fall ranking. Let’s see if someone takes the top spot or if the Loud Crowd gets their fourth title in five years.
2022 SAN DIEGO TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS
1. Carlsbad Loud Crowd
Can anyone do the streamers better than the Loud Crowd? This Student Section is at another level. Every home game is a major disadvantage for the road team, more so than usual with the Loud Crowd going wild! Social media is top-notch here. After missing the top spot last year, the Carlsbad Loud Crowd is the San Diego Football Student Section champions for the fourth time in five years! The Dynasty continues!
2. Rancho Bernardo Stable
The Stable loves to show off its school spirit. I’ve seen this Student Section in person in the winter, so I can assume just how crazy they are in the fall. A sea of blue every home game. The Stable is a consistent powerhouse in San Diego!
3. San Marcos Blue Crew
The Blue Crew fell out of the Top 5 last year, which is rare, but the Blue Crew is back. Great kids with great video people and amazing social media. I love the Blue Crew!
4. Mt. Carmel Red Sea
After taking the top spot last year in San Diego, the Red Sea came back with the same energy. This is a well-respected Student Section and for good reason. This is a large group that goes wild at every home game.
5. St. Augustine Saints Pit
The Saints Pit is an insane group. I’ve seen them inside the gym and they take it up a notch. Probably not as distracting as they are in the winter with their infamous purple curtain, but they can get wild. Don’t worry, that 2021-22 National Basketball Student Section Championship banner will arrive soon!
