With another prep football season upon us, it is again time to go through the numbers.

1: The number of non-playoff seasons for Waupaca since 1990. The Comets went 4-5 in 1990 and have qualified for the WIAA playoffs for 22 straight seasons since, winning Division 3 state championships in 2006 and 2008. In that time, Waupaca has won 19 conference titles and finished second three times.

2: The number of WIAA state football championships won by Appleton city schools. Appleton West won the WIAA Division 1 title in 1992, while Fox Valley Lutheran won the Division 3 crown in 2001.

4: The number of double-digit wins posted by Shiocton in the past seven seasons, including 12 in 2011 when the Chiefs were Division 6 state runners-up. Included in that span are two CWC-8 titles and five second-place finishes.

9: The number of regular-season games prep football teams can schedule this season. After being limited to an eight-game slate in 2012, many interrupted rivalries will be returning this season, including the China Bull game between Winneconne and Omro, slated for Aug. 30 at Omro.

12: The number of games Freedom played last season. Due to a deep playoff run, the Irish finished with a 9-3 record and played the most amount of games in school history for a single season.

12: The number of double-digit win seasons that Hilbert has had in its history, including last season’s 11-1 record.

333: The number of wins Brillion has accumulated since the 1948 season, when the Lions were members of the Little Nine Conference.

351: The number of wins Manawa has since 1950. The Wolves have managed 5.6 wins per season since then, winning 18 conference titles and a WIAA Division 5 state championship in 1985.
