Senior Arman Alizadeh Named All-American by U.S. Lacrosse
Senior attacker Arman Alizadeh, who scored four goals in Jesuit’s 2014 state championship victory over St. Pau’ls, has been named an All-American by U.S. Lacrosse, the sport’s national governing body.
Alizadeh is one of just two players from Louisiana to make the team. Luke Robideaux of St. Thomas More, also a senior, was the other.
A four-year letterman and three-year starter, Alizadeh finished the 2014 season with 65 goals and 75 total points, which includes assists, to help lead the Jays to their third consecutive state title. Jesuit defeated St. Paul’s in the 2012 and 2013 championship games, too.
Lacrosse head coach Mike Brantley said Alizadeh deserves the national recognition.
“Arman was a rocket launcher on a team loaded with firepower,” said Brantley. “The honor is extremely well deserved. That kind of offensive production will be tough to replace,” Brantley added.
Midfielder Chris Powers and defender Antonio Scelfo — members of the Class of 2013 — earned All-American honors after the 2013 season. Scelfo was also named to the 2012 U.S. Lacrosse All-American squad. Attacker Louis LaCour ’10 was an All-American for his play during the 2009-2010 season.
Alizadeh plans to attend Louisiana State University in the fall, where he will study accounting.
