DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - The Wolfpack faithful showed out big for Dothan High’s student section, earning them the title of the best student section in the state of Alabama.

The Bama Buzz announced on Instagram that Dothan was chosen as the winner of the inaugural Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) Fan Challenge after their video submission received the most interactions of all the finalists during the open voting period.

“This year, the student body really came together and worked as one in our student section,” says Colin Groover, Dothan High School Senior and Student Section Co-Leader. “We all worked very hard to be able to win this challenge. We truly showed we were the best in Alabama and it paid off winning this challenge.”

“We, at Dothan High School, have a spirit that is born from our pride in being part of such a great school and community.  Our positive spirit not only comes from our students but also our staff. We are so proud of the efforts of our student body to show the entire state that being a part of the pack is a special feeling that fosters our school spirit. As ALPHA wolves, we desire to establish a good name through our spirit, actions and service. We appreciate BhamNow for selecting Dothan High School as the AHSAA Fan Challenge winners for all classifications and all schools in the great state of Alabama. Go Wolves!” says Dothan High School Principal, Dr. Keith Bland.

With the win, along with ultimate bragging rights, Dothan High School will receive $1000 in prize money from The Bama Buzz to go towards the school’s supplies of choice, a sportsmanship banner, and a feature article through Bham Now/The Bama Buzz. The school will also be recognized on-field at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn before the afternoon game at the Super 7 Championships on Thursday, December 1.

“Dothan High School’s Wolfpack pride is electric and they demonstrate incredible organization, creativity, sportsmanship and support for their school,” said Bama Buzz. “Their fans show up and show out for every game and we were blown away by their submission to the 2022 AHSAA Fan Challenge.”

“I was very excited to see our student section win this award. They have put in a lot of hard work and this is certainly one of the best student sections I have witnessed over the years,” added Dothan City Schools Athletic Director, Jessica Noble.
