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 New Mexico 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 Mexico.

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

The New Mexico 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 Land of Enchantment.


  1. St. Michael’s Blue Crew

The Blue Crew wasn’t even ranked in our preseason rankings, but they impressed me and made it tough to pick who was the best in New Mexico. A larger Student Section that also goes wild for their football team. We’ll see how they’lll fare in Regionals and Nationals, but for now, St. Michael’s Blue Crew is the 2023 New Mexico Football Student Section of the Year!

  1. La Cueva

La Cueva looks like a rowdy and insane Student Section to be apart of. Don’t wear your best clothes in the La Cueva Student Section or you’ll come out in a mess. Definitely a fun Student Section to watch!

  1. Rio Rancho Mob Squad

The Mob Squad looks solid based off the photos you see on social media. They look like a loud and crazy bunch which can mean trouble for any opponent.

  1. Farmington Rowdy Crowd

The Rowdy Crowd stays in the Top 5 for 2023 after taking the state title last fall. The Rowdy Crowd always packs the stands!

  1. Hobbs

Hobbs has always been a rowdy Student Section and you can’t blame them with the amazing athletic programs they have at the school. It is definitely helpful when the team attracts fans, but that Student Section alone can attraction more kids to go nuts!
