In 2015, yours truly began covering Student Sections in Orange County, California. We expanded to Southern California in 2017 and two years ago, we added four more states and added 15 more states. We went to 40 states last fall.
This last winter, we went to all 50 states. No one has ever done that before…until now!
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.
We begin the 2023 Football Student Section Season with a preview of Alaska.
It is going to be very tough to figure out Alaska as we don’t know just how committed they are to going outside for a game, but they have to be used to it. We also don’t see much of them on social media. We hope we get more of Alaska on social media.
Last Football season, we had Juneau Douglas/Thunder Mountain as the top Football Student Section in Alaska. Can they repeat as top dawg in Alaska?
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 Alaska, it’s the Soldonta. Soldonta social media is the most consistent in the state and if they can just show off their student section every now and then, then the top student section title will be theirs in Alaska.
Can Soldotna pull it off? Let’s find out.
2023 ALASKA FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION TOP 20 PRESEASON RANKINGS
One of the few Student Sections that shows itself to the social media world. They want to show their school spirit. This is a solid Student Section if they show consistency. If they show off the rowdy Student Section, than my prediction will be right.
- Juneau Douglas/Thunder Mountain
- West Anchorage Nest
- Eagle River
- South Anchorage
- North Pole
- Bettye Davis East Anchorage
