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 Washington.

A lot of school spirit in this state. Washington is Student Section crazy that it makes it tough to pick the best in this state!

Last season, Eastlake Red Sea took the title as the best Student Section in Washington. Red Sea is insane, but there’s some Student Sections that came to battle this fall, so Eastlake has to be ready to defend its 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 Washington, it’s the Glacier Peak. It is looking like this Student Section has gotten a lot better this fall and may compete for the top spot in this state.

Can Glacier Peak be on top in the Evergreen State? Let’s find out.

The Red Sea is popping up more and more in our Instagram feed and with a Student Section like this, you can’t blame them. They can battle with the best of the best in this state and the Western US.
