(Festus) Robert Kuehnle of the Jefferson Blue Jays is the 2021 Regional Radio Dream Team Baseball Coach of the Year.
Kuehnle lead Jefferson to its first-ever district championship on the diamond, then took things a step further by guiding the Blue Jays all the way to a third-place finish in the state in Class 3.
But Kuehnle is still humbled by the recognition from his coaching peers.
A senior-laden squad won a second straight JCAA Small-School Division title this year for Jefferson in an 18-9 campaign.
Kuehnle says it’s one of the most discipline clubs he’s ever coached.
And Kuehnle is quick to share the glory with the rest of his coaching staff.
Jefferson’s third-place finish at state in baseball ties the 2016 Blue Jay softball team for best state finish by a team sport in school history.
