MADISON, Wis. (WSAW) - The 2023 State Football title games kicked off at Camp Randall in Madison on Thursday morning. It’s their 8th State Championship Title after beating Black Hawk/ Warren 36-6.

For the Edgar Wildcats, it’s a record-setting trip. Edgar officially makes their 14th appearance at state, the most in state history.

Senior Karter Butt controlled the game, setting a new Division 7 state record with five rushing touchdowns, giving him 36 on the season. Butt also intercepted a pass in the fourth quarter. Hoisting the gold ball meant a little bit more for Butt.

“It was unlike anything else. When we walked out, I said, ‘is this like my wedding day,” Butt said. “It was just a great feeling and did it for the city.”

The title was also head coach Jerry Sinz’s eighth in 49 years as head coach, but it isn’t about the state titles to coach Sinz.

“The titles themselves don’t mean a whole lot to me,” Sinz said. “I just enjoy every day at practice. Going out, especially with nice weather like this.”

To take the two-and-a-half-hour trek this year for Wildcats fans provided extra meaning, doing so to make history.

“I have a lot of cousins playing. I’ve been down here a couple of times, but cheering them on, there’s no better feeling than this,” said fan Karson Butt.

Amy Jacobs agreed. “It’s just amazing. It was a great ride down on the bus. The weather is beautiful. It’s a great day.”
