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 10 Student Section of the Week winners in Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania.

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

The Pennsylvania 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 Keystone State.


  1. Cardinal O’Hara Lions Den

The Lions Den get by to take the top spot in 2023. With so many amazing Student Sections in this state, it was a hard decision to make, but the Lions Den was solid all year and were pretty weird, but that is what helps you to be one of the best! We’ll see how they will do in Regionals and Nationals, but for now, the Cardinal O’Hara Lions Den is the 2023 Pennsylvania Football Student Section of the Year!

  1. Bethel Park Nest

The Nest can pack the stands. This large Student Section can be a problem for opposing teams!

  1. Warwick Tribe

The Tribe packed the stands and from the looks of it rattled the opposing teams. They do look pretty loud!

  1. Central Catholic Fleet

The Fleet always had a packed ship or Student Section in this case and the leaders did their job by getting everyone rowdy this season!

  1. McDowell Mob

The Mob was loud and rowdy all year and once again made it as one of the top dawgs in the Student Section scene in this state.
