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 Tennessee.

Tennessee is on the Mount Rushmore of powerful Student Section states. This state is crazy deep with schools full of crazy kids in the stands that love to show off their school spirit.

Last season, the Beech Patrol took the title as the best Student Section in Tennessee and they took the Football Student Section National Title. This Student Section is insane, but they have to battle in order to get another Natty banner. So many amazing Student Sections in the state that will come after the Beech Patrol. It will be a tough task to repeat.

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 Tennessee, it’s the Liberty Pack. We just discovered the Pack and we expect them to crash the party in this stacked state. This state is already Packed, but Liberty is looking to rush to the top.

Can the Liberty Pack be on the top of the good ole Rocky Top? WOO! Let’s find out.

Mustang Mob is off to a big start. Home or on the road, this Student Section is solid and will battle for a state title and a National Championship. Will Tennessee have another National Championship banner? We shall see.
