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 Louisiana.

Lots of good blood in these Student Section battles. Everyone battles for the top spot. This time, no one is looking for that big named QB in Louisiana, he’s now a Longhorn in Texas. It’s going to be another fun one in the Bayou.

Last Football season, we had Catholic Bear Nation as the top Football Student Section in Louisiana. The Bear Nation has a tradition in the stands. One of the best in the state year in and year out. Even the Alumni will come after you if you slip. This group has a winning tradition.

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 Louisiana, it’s the East Ascension Blue Crew. They were not in the rankings for the basketball rankings and they knew it and let me know. The Blue Crew is going to battle this football season and prove yours truly wrong.

Will Bear Nation be on top again or will the Blue Crew take the title? Let’s find out.


  1. Catholic Bear Nation

This is more of they stay in first until someone takes them down. It is also based because this Student Section is solid and loves to show off their school spirit on social media. Bear Nation has a dynasty on their hands in Louisiana.
