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 Texas.
You’d think we would have a lot of info in a state that is known for its love for high school football, but we are still having a hard time with the coverage in this state. Hoping this is the year we get the exposure we want in Texas to make the Top 40 more accurate.
Last season, Allen Eagle Zone took the title as the best Student Section in Texas. Allen was solid and looked like National Student Section Champions, but we have yet to hear from them this season. A repeat is up in the air, but once we see them, we know they will be above the rest.
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 Texas, it’s the Southwest Dungeon. We just noticed this Student Section and we are impressed. This Student Section might battle for the top spot in the state. It will take a lot, but the Dungeon has the potential to do it.
Can the Dungeon be on top in the Lone Star State? Let’s find out.

We are seeing more and more of the Jungle this season and they look like a Student Section that can be the new top dawg in Texas. Amazing school spirit for one of the best football teams in the best football state. Amazing 1-2 combo.
