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 Kentucky.
Kentucky has a solid group of Student Sections and it will be tough to figure who will be the top dawg in this state. Some big time schools and some schools we have discovered. This will be an interesting group.
Last Football season, we had Oldham County O-Zone as the top Football Student Section in Kentucky. The O-Zone is ride or die. Their football team had a tough one last season, but the O-Zone never gave up. If the football team improves, then this is a Student Section you don’t want to mess with.
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 Kentucky, it’s the Marshall County. Marshall gets a ton of respect during basketball season. They have a solid Student Section indoors, but can they duplicate that indoors? Definitely doable.
I guess there’s only one way to find out.

Stang Gang always jumps into a solid start on social media and shows off the Student Section. If they can finish what they started, this will be a for sure number one Student Section at seasons end.
