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 Michigan 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 Michigan, so we hope we were accurate.

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

The Michigan 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 Great Lake State.


  1. Utica Tribe

The Tribe made a big jump in the rankings. The social media improved a lot and showed off a consistent crazy Student Section. I do love me a Neon Theme and the Tribe rocked it. A well improved Student Section will look to battle in Regionals and Nationals, but for now, they’re the 2023 Michigan Football Student Section of the Year!

  1. Henry Ford II Nest

The Nest rocked the Neon Theme and other themes this season. The Nest handled business once again and battled for the top spot. It was a close one, but I have mad respect for the Nest. Social media is great and so is the Nest.

  1. West Bloomfield Swamp

The Swamp had plenty to cheer for as they had one of the best football teams in the state on the football field. It’s not like the Swamp needs a reason to go nuts, but it helps!

  1. Milford Mav Pack 

Mav Pack comes up again with a solid Student Section finish in Michigan. The Country Theme was fire. The Mav Pack social media game was also fire this fall.

  1. Lakeland Blue Crew

The Blue Crew can rock the stands and rock any theme like the Camo Theme. Blue Crew is always crazy and a large Student Section as well.
