Putnam County’s Fleshman Caps Dream Season With KRES Coach of the Year

Area coaches voted Putnam County’s Kyle Fleshman the KRES Boys Coach of the Year as revealed at Wednesday’s All-Star banquet.

Fleshman’s 25-3 Putnam team placed third in Class 2.

Putnam County defeated Bishop LeBlond after its state semifinal loss to Bernie. Putnam previously claimed its fifth-ever district championship and appeared in its first state quarterfinal. The Midgets topped Sacred Heart 70-65 in overtime to clinch a Show-Me Showdown berth.

Fleshman says his career goals were to teach math and coach a district championship team after he experienced a district title as a Putnam player.

Putnam County started four seniors, including KRES All-Star Landon Wood.
