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 Michigan.
There’s some solid Student Sections in this state and one Student Section in particular wasn’t notice and they didn’t notice us last fall, but that is going to change in 2023. We may have a new champ this fall.
Last season, Chippewa Valley Rowdy Red Zone took the title as the best Student Section in Michigan. A samll, but amazing Student Section last season. They showed that it’s not the size of the Student Section, but the noise that they make that counts.
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 Michigan, it’s West Bloomfield Swamp. Solid Student Section that was notice last season and we expect them to battle for the top spot come November.
Can the Swamp be on top in the Great Lakes State? Let’s find out.
