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 Wisconsin.

We didn’t hear a whole much from Wisconsin, but we know some solid group of kids and we hope that list grows as we find out who is the best in the state.

Last season, the Franklin took the title as the best Student Section in Wisconsin. I felt that this Student Section was above the rest in this state and I could be right, but other Student Sections will start to show off their school spirit more and more, so Franklin better be ready to defend their 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 Wisconsin, it’s the Catholic Memorial. Seems like some private schools have the rowdiest Student Sections and I can see Catholic Memorial going crazy this year. We hope to see those results.

Can the Catholic Memorial be on the top in the Badger State? Let’s find out.


  1. Waunakee

Waunkee can fill up the stands and get crazy. The tough task to finish number one at seasons end may not be as tough unless Student Sections consistently show off their school spirit, which Waunakee can also do!
