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 Idaho.

I felt like I didn’t know much about Idaho, but there’s some great Student Sections out there where it is a tough task to decided who is the best because they’re all very evenly matched.

Last season, Owyhee took the title as the best Student Section in Idaho. This wasn’t a runaway as there’s 5-7 Student Sections in this state that are pretty equal, but Owyhee made a strong impression towards the end that gave them the state title. If they can’t do the same, they may go back-to-back.

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 Idaho, it’s Borah Rowdies. We are starting to notice more and more of the Rowdies on Instagram and if we see consistency from them, we may have a new state champ!

Can the Rowdies be on top in the Gem State? Let’s find out.


  1. Weiser

Weiser battled for the top spot last season and we have already seen them on Instagram. In a state that has solid Student Sections where you can’t find one that stands above the rest, it will take a lot to stand on top. It’s a battle and Weiser will be ready.
