The time has come to start ranking 50 states that we covered this football season. 

To say I’m overwhelmed with the work that comes along with this is an understatement.

We had 10 Student Section of the Week winners in Idaho and that helped us determine who had the best Student Section and which ones 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 it 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.

This is our second year covering Student Sections in Idaho, so we hope we were accurate.

We are slowly getting to know more and more of this state when it comes to Student Sections. We have found some solid ones this season and we hope to continue to see more fantastic Student Sections in this state in the future.

The Idaho Football Student Section Champion will move on to Regionals in hopes to get the National Championship banner as voting will now get involved!

So, let’s see who made the list and who is the best in Gem State.


  1. Sugar-Salem

Sugar-Salem gave us a strong last impression and even then this Student Section impressed me all season. They battled and held on as they are the 2023 Idaho Football Student Section of the Year. Onto Regionals!

  1. Eagle Stang Gang

Stang Gang showed great consistency all season and proved they’re one of the best Student Sections in the state.

  1. Lake City

Lake City made a splash to start the season and stayed the course all season to remain one of the best in Idaho.

  1. Rigby Maroon Militia

Maroon Militia made another strong showing this season and has kept another Top 5 finish in Idaho. Rigby is looking like one of the more consistent Student Sections in Idaho. That’s worth some powder throwing.

  1. Borah Rowdies

The Rowdies Pink Out looked amazing. The Rowdies come up with another Top 5 finish in Idaho.
