  • 2023 PENNSYLVANIA FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    The time has come to start ranking 50 states that we covered this football season. 

    To say I’m overwhelmed with the work that comes along with this is an understatement.

    We had 10 Student Section of the Week winners in Pennsylvania and that helped us determine who had the best Student Section and which ones wanted it more.

    Just showing up in large crowds isn’t enough. It might fool other outlets that don’t cover Student Sections, but not us. We have to know how bad you want it and marketing is key. 

    You will see top-notch Student Sections miss out at the top spot, but we kept saying it over and over and over again, in order to be considered number one, you have to win the Student Section of the Week title. Otherwise, what is the point of having that contest?!

    I know Student Sections complain, but remember it’s thousands of Student Sections and only me. Social media is your friend if used correctly.

    This is our second year covering Football Student Sections in Pennsylvania.

    I feel like we haven’t gotten a solid grasp of Pennsylvania Student Sections yet, but we have noticed more Student Sections in this state, so we hope to be more accurate.

    The Pennsylvania Football Student Section Champion will move on to Regionals in hopes to get the National Championship banner as voting will now get involved!

    So, let’s see who made the list and who is the best in the Keystone State.

    2023 PENNSYLVANIA FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Cardinal O’Hara Lions Den

    The Lions Den get by to take the top spot in 2023. With so many amazing Student Sections in this state, it was a hard decision to make, but the Lions Den was solid all year and were pretty weird, but that is what helps you to be one of the best! We’ll see how they will do in Regionals and Nationals, but for now, the Cardinal O’Hara Lions Den is the 2023 Pennsylvania Football Student Section of the Year!

    1. Bethel Park Nest

    The Nest can pack the stands. This large Student Section can be a problem for opposing teams!

    1. Warwick Tribe

    The Tribe packed the stands and from the looks of it rattled the opposing teams. They do look pretty loud!

    1. Central Catholic Fleet

    The Fleet always had a packed ship or Student Section in this case and the leaders did their job by getting everyone rowdy this season!

    1. McDowell Mob

    The Mob was loud and rowdy all year and once again made it as one of the top dawgs in the Student Section scene in this state.

    1. South Fayette Jungle
    1. Keystone Oaks Eagles Nest
    1. Jefferson Jungle

  • 2023 VIRGINIA FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    The time has come to start ranking 50 states that we covered this football season. 

    To say I’m overwhelmed with the work that comes along with this is an understatement.

    We had 11 Student Section of the Week winners in Virginia and that helped us determine who had the best Student Section and which ones wanted it more.

    Just showing up in large crowds isn’t enough. It might fool other outlets that don’t cover Student Sections, but not us. We have to know how bad you want it and marketing is key. 

    You will see top-notch Student Sections miss out at the top spot, but we kept saying it over and over and over again, in order to be considered number one, you have to win the Student Section of the Week title. Otherwise, what is the point of having that contest?!

    I know Student Sections complain, but remember it’s thousands of Student Sections and only me. Social media is your friend if used correctly.

    This is our second year covering Football Student Sections in Virginia.

    I feel like we haven’t gotten a solid grasp of Virginia Student Sections yet, but we have noticed more Student Sections in this state, so we hope to be more accurate.

    Speaking of which, we discovered a lot of Student Sections in Virginia that this is the most underrated state when it comes to Student Section. This state is packed with amazing Student Sections. Bravo!

    The Virginia Football Student Section Champion will move on to Regionals in hopes to get the National Championship banner as voting will now get involved!

    So, let’s see who made the list and who is the best in The Old Dominion.

    2023 VIRGINIA FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Stone Bridge Dogpound

    The Dogpound looks insane! They can pack the house and can definitely make an insane amount of noise. The photos are crazy! We’ll see how they’ll do in Regionals and Nationals, but for now they’re the 2024 Virginia Football Student Section of the Year!

    1. Tuscarona Tusky Terror

    Tusky Terror looks like they’re a terror to football teams that face Tuscarona because they look like a loud and rowdy crowd. One of the best!

    1. Loudoun Valley Jungle

    The Jungle loves showing off their Student Section on social media. They can hang with the best regardless of that. I’m a big fan of the Jungle.

    1. Loudoun County Raider Riot

    Raider Riot has some amazing leaders, but you can sense by the photos that the job was easy because they have some kids who love to show up and go wild. Great school spirit!

    The time has come to start ranking 50 states that we covered this football season. 

    To say I’m overwhelmed with the work that comes along with this is an understatement.

    So, let’s see who made the list and who is the best in the First State.

    2023 DELAWARE FINAL TOP 20 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Salesianum

    I’m not sure if this is a High School Student Section. It is a pretty large Student Section that makes you think it is a college Student Section. Seeing videos of them sold me that this is one of the best in the Eastern US. We’ll see how they do in Regionals and Nationals, but they are the 2023 Delaware Football Student Section of the Year!

    1. Odessa

    It is always Duck season when Odessa is in the stands! Very colorful and fun Student Section to be in by the photos you see. Quack Quack!

    1. Smyrna

    Smyrna looks like a crazy one in the stands. One of the best in the state that we’re keeping an eye on in the Winter season.

    1. Cape Henlopen

    Cape Henlopen looks like they like to party on Friday Nights in the stands. It is an event for the school and the Student Section as they cheer on their football team.

    1. Appoquinimink

    This Student Section can light it up in the stands. They looked like a favorite early one and earned a Top 5 finish!

    So, let’s see who made the list and who is the best in the Tar Heel State.

    2023 NORTH CAROLINA FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Providence Day

    Looking at the photos of these Student Section made me make a change when I saw Providence Day. This Student Section Charged their way to the top. I was very impressed and I wonder if they’ll impress us in Regionals and maybe Nationals. One thing is for sure, Providence Day is the 2023 North Carolina Football Student Section of the Year!

    1. Cannon Crazies

    The Crazies came very close from repeating as Student Section Football State Champions. Consistent on social media and they rocked the themes. One of the best once again in North Carolina!

    1. Grimsley

    Grimsley packed the stands and battled for the top spot this season. Can’t wait to see how the Winter season will fare for this Student Section.

    1. Millbrook Maniacs

    The Maniacs are one of the better consistent Student Sections and it was no different during football season. The Maniacs are crazy ones in the stands!

    1. Wakefield Wackos

    The Wackos get the slight edge for a Top 5 finish. It’s a party in the USA when you’re a Wakefield Wacko!

    If it weren’t for the help of our good friends at Maryland Student Section Rater (@mdstudentsectionrater on Instagram), we wouldn’t have an accurate list, but thanks to their help and their expertise, this is a list I can trust!

    The Maryland Football Student Section Champion will move on to Regionals in hopes to get the National Championship banner as voting will now get involved!

    So, let’s see who made the list and who is the best in the Old Line State.

    2023 MARYLAND FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Archbishop Spalding Rowdy Red

    Rowdy Red definitely rocks the Red. They also can rock White and Blue. This Student Section is insane and they love showing off the insanity on social media. Every week was a party in the stands. We will see how Rowdy Red will do in Regionals and Nationals, but for now, Archbishop Spalding Rowdy Red is the 2023 Maryland Football Student Section of the Year!

    1. Northwest Jag Nation

    Jag Nation seems to love wearing black. It makes them look like a scary Student Section. Whatever it takes to rattle the opposing team. The themes and the powder makes it a perfect combo for Jag Nation.

    1. Linganore Tribe

    The Tribe looks like one of the larger Student Section in the state. The Tribe prepares for battle and makes sure they are too loud for any opposing team that gets in their football team way.

    1. Quince Orchard Red Army

    The Red Army didn’t just rock the red well, they also rocked the black theme as well. The Red Army can pack the stands and go nuts every Friday!

    1. Frederick Sabre Nation

    Sabre Nation social media is consistent and they showed a rowdy group of kids in the stands. I can expect this Student Section to go nuts in the winter. A very consistent Student Section that you see at the very least the Top 5 in Maryland.

    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 Delaware.

    This state is still a mystery to me when it comes to Student Sections. We hope to see more from this state this fall.

    Last winter, Middletown took the title as the best Student Section in the state. More will be revealed if this Student Section can hold onto that as we get to know more and more of the Delaware Student Sections.

    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 Delaware, it’s Cape Henlopen. While we are still learning about this state school spirit, we are aware of how much pride these kids have for their football team. It’s good enough for a battle for number one in the nation.

    Can Cape Henlopen be on top in the First State? Let’s find out.

Thankfully his fellow Nitty Lions helped us find some Student Sections. We hope to find some more this fall.

    Last season, South Fayette Jungle took the title as the best Student Section in Pennsylvania. Our first year covering this state last year, so we’ll see if the Jungle will end up at the top again. This is a solid Student Section.

    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 New Jersey, it’s Bergen Catholic. This Student Section is consistent when it comes to showing off their Student Section on social media. They’re definitely going to battle for the top spot.

    Can Bergan Catholic be on top in the Garden State? Let’s find out.

  • 2023 NORTH CAROLINA FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION TOP 40 PRESEASON RANKINGS

    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 North Carolina.

    We’ve covered North Carolina last season, but we didn’t get much from them. We hope to see and give them more exposure on here and on social media.

    Last season, the Crest Crazies took the title as the best Student Section in North Carolina. We have a feeling it will take a lot to take these kids off the top sot in the state.

    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 North Carolina, it’s  Millbrook Maniacs. A solid Student Section, but we rarely see them on social media. If they show some consistency by showing off their school spirit, then they could be the top dawg in North Carolina.

    Can Millbrook be the best in the Tar Heel state? Let’s find out.

    We continue with the 2023 Football Student Section Season with a preview of Maryland.

    We have yet to see Maryland best Student Section during football season, but from what we saw during the basketball season, this won’t be a tough task. There’s alot of solid Student Sections in this state.

    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 Maryland, it’s the DeMatha Herd. This is the Mater Dei of the East. Well respect athletic program, but this Student Section is a lot better than the Mater Dei Den. The Herd is solid and crazy and shows it off on IG. DeMatha may have two top ranked teams this football season.
