Bellevue assistant coach Ashkaan Jaberi picked up an honor recently, as US Lacrosse Washington named him its Assistant coach of the Year for 2014.

Jaberi, also a member of the Bellevue football team coaching staff and a 2007 alum, played an integral role in the defensive game plan for the state title game against Issaquah.

The Eagles had beaten Bellevue earlier in the year, 6-5, but Jaberi’s plan was executed to perfection with a state crown on the line, and his team posted the first ever shutout in a Washington state championship game.

Coach John Baumann praised Jaberi in a postgame interview.

“Coach Ashkaan did a great job preparing our team.”
