Player of the Year honors were determined by a statewide media vote (Over 25 media members from all parts of the state) of people that work in media, radio, newspaper, television and finalized by Chet Kuplen of Sports in Kansas and Conor Nicholl of Sports in Kansas. Players of the Year and Finalists are eligible for a Sports in Kansas Patch. Stay on our feed over the next few days for updated coverage and all-state teams for both boys and girls.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Jueneman, a junior, has delivered a 40-inch vertical and many highlight reel dunks. He helped Hanover roll to the Class 1A, Division II state title. Hanover again captured eight-man football and boys’ basketball crowns in the same year. Jueneman finished with 18 points, 4.5 assists and three rebounds a contest. Hanover has seven players who can dunk for a school that has roughly 20 to 30 boys in the entire school. A video of them dunking during state week went viral on SIK with over 1-million views.
Hanover, which ended the season on a 20-game winning streak, averaged 64 points per game with 18 assists and 15 steals a contest.
Jueneman was the team’s leading scorer, though three other players – seniors Blake Hynek and Jacob Jueneman and junior Keagan Dimler – all averaged between 9.6 and 12.7 points per contest. Hanover cruised through the postseason with wins of 74-37, 71-37, 85-58 and 52-40 in its last four contests.
In football, Jueneman finished with 22 catches for 418 yards and nine scores for the undefeated Wildcats. That included a pair of receiving scores in the championship game.
Hanover High School would like to congratulate all of the players and coaches on the 2021 1A-II state title. We would also like to congratulate Emmitt Jueneman as the SIK 1A-II POY! We are proud of you!
