When doing three days of research for nominees for Student Section of the Week in 25 States, I kept wondering, is the lost freedom to do this worth it?
The answer, ab-solll-utely!
We estimated over 175,000 votes, we had some very close ones. We want to thank all of you for voting! This is a WE thing and to put Student Sections on the map, we have to do our part and you certainly did that.
To the ones that lost in a heartbreak, don’t worry, we have several more weeks of this and we potentially have a National Bracket for the best Fall Student Section of 2020!
Out of the 27 States that had Fall sports this past week, 5 of them only had one nominee, which meant they had a winner by default. Only one state didn’t have a nominee.
This week, we welcome Michigan and Maine to the madness. Let’s see if we can reach 200,000 votes!
Some Student Sections were at minimum capacity while others used alternatives like showing their support on social media or a watch party at the school. Whatever works to show off your rowdy school spirit!
Since this is our first year covering student sections all over the country, we are still not familiar with all the student sections, which hurt for states that don’t have a large number of high schools.
Anywho, here are the Student Section Report Student Section of the Week!
STUDENT SECTION OF THE WEEK (SEPT 5-12, 2020)
Gardendale Launch Pad
Gardendale and Cullman went to battle! This was a close one and Gardendale came away with the win as the polls were supposed to close (sorry, first time doing this poll app., so a glitch was bound to happen!)
Cullman, Hoover, Spanish Fort
Dimond of Anchorage
Cabot Panther Pit
Like the battle in Alabama, this one was close and the voting went nuts after polling was supposed to close. While we knew who won, we have to give credit to both the Panther Pit and the Dawgpound for almost crashing our website. I’m not even mad, that’s impressive! Bravo guys!
Van Buren Dawgpound, Central of Little Rock, Jonesboro Dawgpound
If your student section is missing here, let us know and we’ll add them to the list or we’ll follow you.

It’s our last day of homecoming bulldogs! Don’t forget tomorrow is spirit day and you need to come decked out in your gear!! The assembly is at 8:55-9:55 and royalty will be crowned then! Once the assembly is done we will go back to classes and there will be some time for people to finish decorating floats! Then at @2 is when the parade will start everyone will get lined up in the order on the parade line up and we will drive to the boat doc and when we are ready to go it will start! Keep in mind the parade route is really long! Later in the evening at 7 is the football game! Come watch the boys play and bring fly swatters to swat the hornets! Also at halftime royalty will be announced! ❤️?? have a great day bulldogs and bring lots of spirit tomorrow!!

People are wondering why we got such a huge vote in Mississippi. Tupelo and Oxford are huge rivals. With those numbers, that seems like an understatement.
