The Magic Behind HSE’s Outstanding Student Section


Dominic Sicilia

The Hamilton Southeastern High School Student Section is one of the best in the Indianapolis area. It has been recognized for this, winning the Operation Football Spirit award, and being named the best student section of the week by wish tv multiple times. The student section was filled for every home football game and was very good for other sports.

Senior student section leader Eli Kibble said, “I think we just all worked together really well. We also love and are connected to the players on the field, and we genuinely want them to win”. The student section helped as the royals won 12 straight games to start the season for the first time since 1997. As to why the student turnout has been so great, athletic director James Self believes, “It’s fun, the atmosphere is electric, and we’ve been good. At the end of the day there is nothing like being involved in high school athletics” It is safe to say Self is right as the fan turnout has been as good as ever and HSE football is coming off one of their best years ever. Although the student section was great last year, moving forward to next year the student section will try to improve and help the royals replicate their past athletic success.
