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 8 Student Section of the Week winners in Montana 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 Montana.

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

The Montana 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 Treasure State.


  1. Hamilton

The Bronc House can pack the stands better than anyone else. The themes were great, but I enjoyed how consistant this Student Section was on social media when it came to showing off their school spirit. We’ll see how they’ll fare in Regionals and Nationals, but for now Hamilton is your 2023 Montana Football Student Section Champion!

  1. Capital

Capital is loud, and wacky. Both make a great combination and they know, hence why they love to show off their Student Section on social media.

  1. Sentinel 

Sentinel looks like a very rowdy Student Section. Crazy and loud makes a great combo.

  1. Billings Central Catholic

This Student Section doesn’t stand alone. They are one of those bands that unites with their band. Amazing school spirit!
