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 Pennsylvania.

We know of some of the best Student Sections in this state thanks to a former Student Section leader of the Edison MESS of Southern California who became a member of the Penn State Legion Blue. Thankfully his fellow Nitty Lions helped us find some Student Sections. We hope to find some more this fall.

Last season, South Fayette Jungle took the title as the best Student Section in Pennsylvania. Our first year covering this state last year, so we’ll see if the Jungle will end up at the top again. This is a solid Student Section.

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 Pennsylvania, it’s the Thomas Jefferson Jungle. This Student Section is starting to come up more and more and they can battle for the number one spot.

Can the Jungle be on top in the Quaker State? Let’s find out.


  1. South Fayette Jungle

The Jungle is consistent on social media and what they show off is legit for a top Student Section in this state. The Jungle can hang with the best of them as they look to repeat.
