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 continue with the 2023 Football Student Section Season with a preview of Hawaii.

This is a tough one for Hawaii and our thoughts and prayers are with them with the recent fires that has taken innocent lives. Student Section season might be different or perhaps non-existent. Whatever the path is, we support it.

Last Football season, we had Punahou as the top Football Student Section in Hawaii. Can they repeat as Hawaii best or will someone push them past the tide?

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 Hawaii, it’s the Iolani. I feel only one Student Section can hang with Punahou and Iolani could be the only one that can take the defending champs down.

Will this Student Section have what it takes to be the new champs in Hawaii? Let’s find out.
