The following paragraph is from Vikings.com
Week 5 Coach of the Week is Randy Kuechenmeister of Blue Earth Area. He’s in his 30th season as head coach at Blue Earth and has a 75-31 mark over the past 10 years. He has led the team to 7 state football tournament appearances since 2006 and won the state title in 2012.
The Vikings and Gatorade are teaming up to honor a Gatorade Coach of the Week after each week of games during the high school football season. Coaches are chosen based on their contribution on the football field, but more importantly on the impact they make within their community and for their student athletes.
In addition to being recognized in local media for the achievement, the school’s football program receives Gatorade product for the season and a $1,000 donation on behalf of the Minnesota Vikings.
