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 Southern California.

SoCal is our bread and butter as we are located here in Orange County. The Student Section Report started as SoCal Student Sections in 2018 and before that we covered SoCal at SoCal Sidelines in 2015. While we have grown outside of SoCal, it is still one of the best to cover. Amazing school spirit down here!

Last Football season, we had Carlsbad Loud Crowd as the top Football Student Section in SoCal. Can they repeat and be on top in not just SoCal, but the best Student Section in the nation. The Loud Crowd battled for the National Title, but my once small website crashed during the voting and the Loud Crowd couldn’t make a go for it. If they can get past everyone in SoCal, put your money down for them to take the National Title.

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 SoCal, it’s the La Serna Kingdom. The Kingdom battled for the top spot in LA with Redondo Union Flock, but now with no region rankings in SoCal, they will battle with the best all around SoCal. I think the Kingdom will make a splash and battle with the best this season.

Will the Kingdom get past the Loud Crowd, Great Oak Red Wave and the Flock? We’ll find out.


  1. Carlsbad Loud Crowd

The Loud Crowd has a dynasty on their hands and that is not easy to do in one of the toughest regions in the country. This should be the Loud Crowd year to take the National Title. All they have to do is the same thing they’ve been doing on social media. Show off that school spirit.
