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 Minnesota 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 Minnesota, so we hope we were accurate.

I feel like we haven’t gotten a solid grasp of Minnesota Student Sections yet, but we have noticed more Student Sections in this state, so we hope to be more accurate. We do know this state just got deeper in solid Student Sections.

The Minnesota 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 North Star State.


  1. St. Michael-Albertville

Social Media was amazing and many have mention how solid this Student Section is. So many amazing themes that it is tough to pick one. We’ll see how far St. Michael-Albertville will go in the Regional and maybe National vote, but for now, St. Michael-Albertville is the 2023 Minnesota Football Student Section of the Year!

  1. Wayzata Trojan Nation

Trojan Nation would win a state title in almost every state. One of the best in the nation for sure. White Out Theme was insane. Fantastic band, football team and Student Section.

  1. Edina

Edina Student Section can pack the stands and hang with the best of the best. Rocking the Green make Edina look insane and insane is exactly what the best Student Sections are looking for. Expect this Student Section to move up next season and perhaps for the Winter season.

  1. Minnetonka Blue Crew 

Red, White and Blue or Blue Out, the Blue Crew can rock the Blue anyplace, anytime. Minnetonka is a every year contender for the Student Section state title.

  1. Cloquet Crazies

The Crazies showed up and showed out. Black Out Theme is a good look for the Crazies. Another fantastic season for the Cloquet Student Section.
