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 Nebraska.

There is a solid Student Section in here, in fact they have the potential to be the Nations best, but we never really get any interaction from them. Doesn’t help when there’s other top notch Student Sections in this state.

Last season, Millard West Crazies took the title as the best Student Section in Nebraska. One of the best Student Sections in the Nation. If we can get some interaction from them, then we will see a dynasty here in not just Nebraska, but the entire country!

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 Nebraska, it’s Roncalli Catholic Lions Den. We are starting to see more of the Lions Den this season compared to last season and we hope that this stays consistent as they battle for the top spot.

Can the Lions Den be on top in the Cornhusker State? Let’s find out.


  1. Creighton Prep Bird Cage

It will take a lot to take down the Crazies, but the Bird Cage wants this. I can see the Bird Cage showing off their school spirit every week and ending at the top.
