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.
