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 12 Student Section of the Week winners in Kentucky 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 Kentucky.

I feel like we haven’t gotten a solid grasp of Kentucky Student Sections yet, but we have noticed more Student Sections in this state, so we hope to be more accurate.

The Kentucky 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 Bluegrass State.


  1. Male Dawgpound

The Dawgpound packed the stands and stayed with the rest of the big Student Section this season. A lot of amazing Student Sections in this state and it was close. We’ll see how the Dawgpound will fare in Regionals and Nationals, but for now, the Male Dawgpound is the 2023 Kentucky Football Student Section of the Year!

  1. Bowling Green Bad Boyz

Bowling Green got off to an amazing start and stayed the course as they ended as one of the best in Kentucky!

  1. Boyle County Rebel Rowdies

When you have one of the best football teams in Kentucky, you will have a packed Student Section. This is definitely a Rowdy bunch!

  1. Henry Clay

One of the better teams in the state had to have one of the better Student Sections in the state. You would be right!

  1. Martha Layne Collins Hype Team

The Hype Team is just getting started. I can see their Basketball Student Section being better and that is scary if the Football Student Section is Top 5 this season. Definitely all Hype at MLC!
