Congrats to Muskogee coach Bobby Jefferson!

It was a good year for Muskogee wrestling coach Bobby Jefferson. His Roughers squad won the Class 6A dual state championship. He was inducted into the Oklahoma chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in October.

And Wednesday added another honor as Jefferson was named the National Federation of State High School Associations’ Wrestling Coach of the Year for 2009-10.

Jefferson was one of 21 coaches receiving honors in 21 sports, but he was the only coach selected from Oklahoma.

Jefferson, who has coached at Muskogee for 30 years, has coached 11 individual champions and eight All-Americans. His dual record coming into the year was 288-79-2.
