John Iason Coach's Award
John Iason was a volunteer coach and dear friend of the program until his passing in 2013
In 2014, we began to honor Coach John's memory by giving The John Iason Coach's Award each year.

It is important to note that The John Iason Coach's Award is not necessarily given to the MVP or best player on the team. Rather, it is meant to given to the player that best represents some of John’s core values. Values such as hard work, humility, helping others, integrity, leadership and a general love for the game of lacrosse are considered.
