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 Kansas 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 Football Student Sections in Kansas, so we hope we were accurate.

I feel like we haven’t gotten a solid grasp of Kansas Student Sections yet, but we have noticed more Student Sections in this state, so we hope to be more accurate. What helped us this fall is we had someone gives us a revised Top 10 this season, so we thank them for their help.

The Kansas 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 the Sunflower State.


  1. Kapaun Mt. Carmel Boneyard

This felt like an easy choice, but the Boneyard rocked it in the stands and on social media. This choice wasn’t just my choice. I ran into Blast Athletics a couple weeks ago and shared that the Boneyard is the best one out there in Kansas. Solid second opinion. We will see how the Boneyard handles Regionals and Nationals as Kapaun Mt. Carmel Boneyard is the 2023 Kansas Football Student Section of the Year!

  1. Eisenhower Zoo

The Zoo moved up thanks to our Kansas correspondent and it was a good catch. This Student Section loves their football team and loves America it seems. A rowdy and solid Student Section.

  1. Olathe South Birdhouse

The Birdhouse social media game was amazing and they loved showing off their Student Section. They made a mess of the football stands, but it was definitely worth it!

  1. Bishop Carroll

Bishop Carroll moved up in the rankings thanks to our correspondent. While this Student Sections weak spot is marketing themselves on social media, they make up for it by how crazy they are in the stands and so much so that you hear about word of mouth.

  1. Maize South Mav Maniacs

The Maniacs can pack the stands and go nuts. So many amazing themes that they rocked while going crazy for their football team.
