Jason Hopkins, a former standout Edmonds-Woodway High School basketball star and 2004 grad, has been name the new varsity boys’ basketball coach at EWHS.
Hopkins replaces Steve Call, who resigned earlier this year.
As an EWHS player, Hopkins earned all-conference honors and went on to play for legendary junior college coach Jerry Carrillo at Arizona’s Cochise College, anchoring a team that won the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference championship. After junior college, Hopkins transferred to Division I school Lipscomb University in Tennessee, where he played for two years and graduated as an Academic All-American.
After graduating from Lipscomb, he returned to Cochise to serve under Carrillo as an assistant coach, then served as an assistant boys basketball coach at Seattle’s Roosevelt High School and head boys coach at Mid-Pacific Institute in Honolulu, Hawaii.
“Jason has a true passion for coaching the student-athlete and helping players reach their goals both on and off of the basketball court,” said Edmonds-Woodway athletic coordinator Angie McGuire. “We are excited to have Jason lead the E-W boys basketball program.”
