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 11 Student Section of the Week winners in New Jersey 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 New Jersey.

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

The New Jersey 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 Garden State.


  1. St. Thomas Aquinas Trojan Army

The Trojan Army social media game was solid this season. They love to show off their school spirit more than others and you can’t blame them. We’ll see how they will do in Regionals and maybe Nationals, but for now they’re the 2023 New Jersey Football Student Section of the Year!

  1. St. Joseph’s Regional Knight Pit

Based on the photos we see on Instagram, The Knights Pit is a crazy and rowdy Student Section.

  1. Bergen Catholic Crusaders Crazies

When you have one of the well respected football teams in the Eastern US, you have no excuse to not show up. State Champs on the field has one of the best in the stands!

  1. Somerville Pioneer Pack

The Pioneer Pack is surrounded by private schools in the Top 5. You have to be pretty darn good to be in that group. The Pack is one of the best!

  1. Don Bosco Prep

I expected Don Bosco Prep here. I was hoping to move them up some spots, but Top 5 is super solid. In the end, they do have a quarterback leading the way in the NFL and one of my Fanasty Football teams, so there’s that!
