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: hard work, humility, helping others, integrity, leadership and a general love for the game of lacrosse.
