Topic Count in Box View

I’m currently building a forum for hosting challenges.
I really like the topic count that you have with the default table views like Categories Only.

Is there a way to display topic count in the box view as well? We plan on using it in a way to show how many people have entered a given contest.

The reason for not using the Category only view is because I couldn’t find a way to change the layout similar to how the box layout is setup.

Thanks
