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 Montana.

This state is still a mystery to me when it comes to Student Sections. We hope to see more from this state this fall.

Last season, Billings Central Catholic took the title as the best Student Section in Montana. It will take a lot for Billings Central Catholic to repeat, especially if we discover more Student Sections.

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 Montana, it’s Big Fork. We didn’t see much of them last season, but if they start showing up more and more this fall, they may battle for the top spot in Montana.

Can Big Fork be on top in the Big Sky Country State? Let’s find out.
