It’s time to cheer for the fans. According to The Student Section Report, The Tribe ranks as the best Michigan Football Student Section.

“The Tribe made a big jump in the rankings,” posted. “The social media improved a lot and showed off a consistent crazy student section. I do love me a neon theme and The Tribe rocked it. A well-improved Student Section will look to battle in Regionals and Nationals, but for now, they’re the 2023 Michigan Football Student Section of the Year!”

With their strong energy and school spirit, they create a supportive environment. Their passion and unity help bring up the strong sense of community.

“I think that us being first in the state was well deserved,” sophomore Jaylen Gary said. “Everyone had high energy and school spirit even through the losses.”

Another student agreed that the student section was very intense.

“The environment of the student section was really cool,” junior Alex Wodniak said. “It made everyone hype and supportive of the team.”

A different student also thought that the support was important for the team and students.

“I definitely didn’t see the student section being number one in the state coming,” sophomore Troy Tartamella said. “It does make sense though since the students were always there to support, even for the small moments.”

Building on the recognition of the support, one of the tribe leaders expressed the gratitude and acknowledgment for the honor.

“It was really an honor that we were first, and I appreciate the times we had,” senior Jorge Martinez said. “I was really happy when I found out, the other Tribe leaders worked hard to get the student section loud and hype for the games, I’m also hoping to do the same for basketball season.”

One other student also held great respect for the team.

“I think it was deserved for sure and I was surprised when I found out,” senior Samantha LoCricchio said. “Our three Tribe leaders really made sure everyone was hyped and excited for the games and I know that they were very happy when they found out about it.”

While each student had different perspectives, the important thing was showing support to the team.

“I think us being number one was exciting and cool, Utica’s Tribe members brought everyone together to get hype for the games,” senior Sarah Fromm said. “It also brings students together to celebrate and be recognized.”
