POTOSI, Wis. -

The Potosi football team is the Prep Mania Team of the Month.

The Chieftains had a memorable year going undefeated in the regular season winning the Six Rivers Conference championship.

After four playoff wins, Potosi played in its first ever state championship game - the Division Seven final against Glenwood City.

Glenwood City won the game 46-21, but seemingly had a "home field" advantage.

Head Coach Mark Siegert said "I looked up in the stands and that is like everyone I have ever seen in Potosi over the last 15 to 20 years and it's everyone that lives there and has taught there went to school there and worked there its everyone and its awesome and it was just a great experience to see all those people."

Siegert added, "it feels amazing we have been looking forward to this for a long time and we have been working for this for a long time and just proud of my guys they did not give up, its just a fun year and a fun career."

Potosi High School has an enrollment of 125.
