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 Nevada.

We’ve covered Nevada in the past and it is a battle for the top spot. A lot of super solid Student Sections in the city of Sin. Big gamble in the rankings…pun intended!

Last season, the Bishop Gorman G-Block took the football Student Section state title after falling super short the previous year. The G-Block should have what it takes to repeat in 2023.

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 Nevada, it’s the Galena Riot Squad. This football team has improved in each of the two seasons we have covered this state. When a team improves, so does its Student Section. We’re hoping the Riot Squad goes crazy this fall.

Will the Riot Squad cause a ruckus and bump the G-Block out of the top spot? Let’s find out.


  1. Bishop Gorman G-Block

G-Block will have a handful of Student Sections coming to dethrone them, but thankfully they have a football team that is used to that situation. The G-Block and the Gaels are the best in Nevada and are crazy in the stands and on the field!
