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 reconigition.

We will kickoff 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.

We will also have Student Section of the Week for each state every week. 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, let’s start with Tennessee, which potentially has 13 games this weekend. 

This is a rowdy state with great student sections. They love to spit hot fire at each other and why not?! Tennessee is an under rated state when it comes to football. They deserve to be considered a hot bed for football. Student Sections is no different.

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 Tennessee, it’s the Oakland O-Zone of Murfreesboro. The O-Zone is pretty spoiled in having one of the states best football programs. We hope they know that and we hope they show off their love for their team on social media as they try to be one of the best along with their Patriots.

Will the O-Zone get past some of the best in Tennessee? Let’s find out.

We also want to thank State of Tennessee High School Football for their advice. Follow them on Instagram (@stateoftennesseehsfb)


  1. Pope John Paul II Blue Man Group of Hendersonville

One of the top teams in Tennessee comes with a rowdy and insane student section. I saw what they did inside a gym, can they do the same outside? Can they hold on to the top state ranking by seasons end? We know it won;t be easy, but the Blue Man Group is crazy enough to try!
