  • 2023 MISSISSIPPI 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 Mississippi 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 Mississippi.

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

    The Mississippi 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 Magnolia State.

    2023 MISSISSIPPI FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Starkville Nest

    The Nest was alive in 2024. Loud and pack crowd and they earned the top spot in 2024. We’ll see how they fare in Regionals and Nationals, but for now, the Starkville Nest is the 2024 Mississippi Football Student Section of the Year!

    1. Oak Grove Warrior Mafia

    This was a late change. We should give Oak Grove more respect, so we gave it to them at the 11th hour. Warrior Mafia will be a 2024 favorite next fall!

    1. Tupelo

    Tupelo always comes out as one of the best Student Sections in Mississippi. They have shown consistency when it comes to being a bit odd, which is required.

    1. Madison Central Jungle

    The Jungle moves up in the rankings this year. They can pack the stands and rock any theme.

    1. Jackson Prep Patriot Pack

    The Pack looked insane in 2023. Honestly it is an improvement from last year and we hope they improve even more in 2024.

    1. Biloxi Indian Nation
    1. West Jones
    1. Oxford O-Zone
    1. Ocean Springs

  • 2023 ALABAMA 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 12 Student Section of the Week winners in Alabama 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 Alabama.

    We hope to get a solid grasp of the Student Section scene in Alabama, but there are so many Student Sections. This is the deep state when it comes to Student Sections and we’re hoping to be more accurate this fall!

    The Alabama 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 Heart of Dixie.

    2023 ALABAMA FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Auburn Unit

    The Unit has done it again. They show up in large packs and are consistent when it comes to social media. The Unit will look to battle in Regionals and Nationals, but for now they have gone back-to-back as the 2023 Alabama Football Student Section Champions!

    1. Hoover Boneyard

    We didn’t see the Boneyard that often, but when we did, we weren’t disappointed. One of the best in Alabama, the Boneyard can pack any stadium!

    1. Thompson War Zone

    The War Zone has been regarded as one of the best and sometimes you may catch them on National Television. They can rock the best themes out there!

    1. Hewitt-Trussville Dogpound

    The Dogpound is another Student Section people talk about and you can see why. One of the best in Alabama every year!

    1. Vestavia Hills Jungle

    The Jungle is fantastic and what helps is that they have a solid Middle School Student Section. Talk about a winning tradition. The future Jungle is prepped and ready to cheer on for Vestavia Hills!

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

    I feel like we haven’t gotten a solid grasp of Florida Student Sections yet, but we got their attention on social media. It was a battle and as it should be. This State is deep when it comes to Student Sections!

    The Florida 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 Sunshine State.

    2023 FLORIDA FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Apopka Nest

    Let’s be honest, it was there social media marketing that got them over the top in the end. This is a fantastic Student Section that can pack the stands, but they showed off their Student Section more than anyone, well almost anyone, in the state. This Student Section really wanted it and now they have it. We’ll see how they will do in Regionals and Nationals, but for now, the Apopka Nest is your 2023 Florida Football Student Section of the Year!

    1. Deland Dawg Party

    It was always a Dawg Party in the Deland Student Section. The Dawg Party really battled hard for the number one spot. Large Student Section that kicks up the crazy up a few notches. Definitely one of the best in the Nation!

    1. Lake Mary

    Lake Mary battled for the top spot in Florida. They got off to a solid start on social media and showed off a tremendous group of kids in the stands. Country Theme gave them a nice push. Solid Student Section!

    1. Seminole Tribe

    The Tribe comes away with another Top 5 finish and it took a lot of work to get on top of some of the best Student Sections in the South. This is a loud and spirited Student Section!

    1. Lake Brantley

    Lake Brantley is a very large Student Section and an insane one at that. Those poor opposing teams. They had to face the team and this Student Section.

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

    2023 SOUTH CAROLINA FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Chapman Panther Patio

    Social Media is the reason why the Panther Patio is here. They had solid Student Sections basically every week and showed it off on Instagram. It helped them take the National Student Section of the Week during the Football season. We’ll see how they’ll fare in Regionals and Nationals, but for now, the Chapman Panther Patio is your 2023 South Carolina Football Student Section of the Year!

    1. Fort Mill Dawgpound 

    The Dawgpound has consistently been a top Student Section in South Carolina every year. They can pack the stands and arrive with the boldest or brightest themes.

    1. Nation Ford Dirty Birds

    This is one of those Student Sections that we weren’t even aware of until late in the game, but they showed up that they’re one of the best in the state. I can see the Dirty Birds battling in the Winter and for the 2024 Fall State Student Section title!

    1. Clover Crazies

    The Crazies soared with the best of them this season in the stands. Amazing themes, including the Country Theme as it is another Top 5 finish for the Crazies.

    1. Cane Bay Crazies

    The Crazies comes up again with another Top 5 finish. They can pack the stands and as the name says, they can go crazy!

    The Louisiana 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 Bayou State.

    2023 LOUISIANA FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Brother Martin

    Brother Martin was ranked a bit too low for the preseason Student Section rankings and I’m sure they came in to prove us wrong and they did just that. A very rowdy Student Section as they will look to move deep in Regionals and advance to Nationals as Brother Martin takes the 2023 Louisiana Football Student Section Title!

    1. St. Amant Pit Crew

    The Pit Crew battled for the top spot this season and once again come up with a Top 3 finish. Pit Crew is due a Student Section State title. Just as long as they keep the noise at a loud level.

    1. East Ascension Blue Crew

    The Blue Crew got off to a strong start and stayed the course with another Top 5 finish. Blue Crew is loud, rowdy and proud.

    1. Catholic Bear Nation

    While the chance to go for the threepeat fell short, Bear Nation still kept the rich Student Section tradition alive. I can see this Student Section try to go for that three-peat again.

    1. West Monroe Rebel Nation

    Rebel Nation was very impressive. hey showed their Student Section off more than other Student Sections in the state and that is what put them in the Top 5 this season.

    I kind of slept on these guys, but when you look at the pictures, the Wolf Gang looks amazing. One of the Student Sections you don’t want to mess with. They aren’t afraid of being savages at game time. One of the best football teams in the state now has the best Student Sections in the State as the Buford Wolf Gang is the 2023 Georgia Football Student Section of the Year!

    1. Walton Dirty Riders

    The Dirty Riders can pack the stands and get in your head. Fantastic Student Section that can hang with the best of them.

    1. Mill Creek Freeks

    One of the crazier Student Section, so being called the Freeks is convenient. One of the best every year in Georgia. The Tropical Theme was amazing.

    1. Johns Creek Gladiator Army

    Gladiator Army definitely kept the fans entertained and the football team pumped up. Black Out Theme is fire and so was this Student Section.

    1. Veterans Dirty Birds

    The Dirty Birds didn’t disappoint with that Student Section nickname. This Student Section came ready to go to rattle the opponent and cheer on their team!

    This is our second year covering Football Student Sections in Tennessee, so we hope we are accurate.

    This might be the deepest state in the nation when it comes to Student Sections. SoCal and Tennessee are two of the strongest. If we ever go outside of SoCal or Arizona, were going to Tennessee first. Amazing schools over there.

    The Tennessee 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 Volunteer State.

    2023 TENNESSEE FINAL TOP 40 FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION RANKINGS

    1. Houston Mustang Mob

    The Mustang Mob was close to perfect this fall. They always showed off their Student Section on social media, every week. They traveled for games, they proved they were the best and let yours truly know that. The Mustang Mob never disappointed. This Student Section is a favorite for the Regional and National title, but they have to vote and win it, but for now, the Houston Mustang Mob is the 2023 Tennessee Football Student Section of the Year!

    1. Baylor

    Baylor has always been a solid Student Section. The Jersey Theme is amazing. You may not see this Student Section that much on social media, but when you do, they don’t disappoint.

    1. Montgomery Bell Academy

    This is a legendary Student Section. This school has a long rich history and so does this Student Section. Big Red goes perfect for these kids in the stands.

    1. Nolansville

    Nolansville looks like a Student Section full of weirdos and that always helps when you try and move up in the rankings. This Student Section definitely has the look of a crazy group!

    1. Independence Indy Nation

    This is one of the larger Student Section and based on the photos, they look intimidating. White Out Theme is pretty normal, but it is one of their school colors and they can rock it.

  • 2023 MISSISSIPPI 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 Mississippi.

    Thanks to our Mississippi Student Section Rep, we feel like were getting to know this state a little better and we hope we know them even more by the end of the football season.

    Last season, Oxford O-Zone took the title as the best Student Section in Mississippi. O-Zone is an insane Student Section that shows up anywhere for their teams, it will take a lot to dethrone the O-Zone, but this state has some high-quality 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 Mississippi, it’s West Jones. This is a Student Section that wasn’t on our radar last season, but they’ve been impressive to start the season. I expect West Jones to make a big splash this fall.

    Can West Jones be on top in the Magnolia State? Let’s find out.

    2023 MISSISSIPPI FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION TOP 40 PRESEASON RANKINGS

  • 2023 ALABAMA 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 Alabama.

    One of my favorite states when it comes to school spirit. Well-mannered Student Section leaders which blows my mind being how completive these kids get in the stands. This state has a lot of insane Student Sections. Makes me want to say WAR EAGLE! (Sorry to my Roll Tide friends, I’m an Auburn fan.)

    Last season, the Auburn Unit took the title as the best Student Section in Alabama. The Unit had to battle for the top spot with the Hoover Boneyard. It was close and the Unit will have to battle with more than Hoover. So many Student Sections will battle for the top spot.

    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 Alabama, it’s the Tuscaloosa. We ranked Tuscaloosa low in the basketball Student Section rankings this summer and we heard them loud and clear. We expect them to show us that they’re Top 5-10 material.

    Can the Tuscaloosa be on the top in the Yellowhammer State? Let’s find out.

    2023 ALABAMA FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION TOP 40 PRESEASON RANKINGS

    1. Auburn Unit

    It will be tough to repeat and so far we have yet to hear from the Unit, but if they start showing up and showing off their school spirit, they have a solid shot at repeating as State Champs!

    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.

    2023 TENNESSEE FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION TOP 40 PRESEASON RANKINGS

    1. Houston Mustang Mob

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

    There isn’t a real powerhouse Student Section in this state, so the top spot is up for grabs for anyone. It won’t be a landslide type win for the top spot.

    Last season, the Dutch Fork took the title as the best Student Section in South Carolina. If they don’t improve, they will be dethroned. No one really stood out from the rest. This is anyone’s ballgame, but the defending champs will battle to stay at the top spot.

    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 South Carolina, it’s Chapman Panther Patio. The Panther Patio is on social media a lot more than usual this season and we’ve noticed. The Panther Patio is going to battle for the top spot in the state this fall.

    Can the Panther Patio sneak in as the best in the Palmetto state? Let’s find out.

    2023 SOUTH CAROLINA FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION TOP 40 PRESEASON RANKINGS

    1. Clover Crazies

    Everyone in this state is pretty equal, but I can see the Crazies getting just a little extra crazy to stay at the top. The Crazies show off their school spirit on IG consistency, so they should get their reward come November.

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

    Lots of good blood in these Student Section battles. Everyone battles for the top spot. This time, no one is looking for that big named QB in Louisiana, he’s now a Longhorn in Texas. It’s going to be another fun one in the Bayou.

    Last Football season, we had Catholic Bear Nation as the top Football Student Section in Louisiana. The Bear Nation has a tradition in the stands. One of the best in the state year in and year out. Even the Alumni will come after you if you slip. This group has a winning tradition.

    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 Louisiana, it’s the East Ascension Blue Crew. They were not in the rankings for the basketball rankings and they knew it and let me know. The Blue Crew is going to battle this football season and prove yours truly wrong.


    Will Bear Nation be on top again or will the Blue Crew take the title? Let’s find out.

    2023 LOUISIANA FOOTBALL STUDENT SECTION TOP 40 PRESEASON RANKINGS

    1. Catholic Bear Nation

    Georgia has been interacting with us very well and I can definitely see more Student Sections going wild this fall in the Peach State. A lot of great school spirit in this state. Perhaps it’s the Coke Cola in their system.

    Last Football season, we had Mill Creek Freaks as the top Football Student Section in Georgia. The Freaks battled with some solid Student Sections last year and the title was well deserved. Can they repeat? It will be tough.

    Florida’s Top 10 can battle with any other state. It will be tough to pick the preseason number 1 this season, but we’ll see who will battle for the final top spot in November.

    Last Football season, we had Tampa Catholic Green Locos as the top Football Student Section in Florida. The Green Locos didn’t take this easily as other top Student Sections battled for the top spot. It will be a tough one to keep in 2023, but the Green Locos will battle for the best Student Section crown in Florida.
