Last night the CCAA unveiled their 2016 soccer All-Canadians and four PACWEST athletes were named along with a Coach of the Year, two of which are Capilano Blues.
ALL-CANADIAN: Keith Jackson
Jackson led the PACWEST in scoring with 11 goals this season and had three multi-goal games, as the Blues cruised to a first-place finish with a 10-0-2 record. The third-year forward works tirelessly on the field and creates numerous scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates.
COACH OF THE YEAR: Paul Dailly
Paul Dailly of the Capilano Blues has been named the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Men’s Soccer Coach of the Year.
Dailly received the award this evening during the CCAA All-Canadian Banquet at the 2016 CCAA Men’s Soccer National Championship, hosted by Keyano College in Fort McMurray, AB.
A season removed from a trip to the CCAA National Championship gold-medal game, Dailly guided the Blues to a 10-0-2 record and first-place finish in the PACWEST. The undefeated season comes on the heels of a 7-6-2 regular season in 2015.
“Paul has done an outstanding job in building Capilano into a serious contender at CCAA Nationals,” said CCAA Men’s Soccer Convenor David Munro. “His leadership helped nurture a belief and trust in his system that produced a cohesive team and an undefeated season in the tough PACWEST conference.”
Dailly’s main objective has been to lead the Blues program back to the winning tradition of the past. No CCAA Men's Soccer team has more gold medals (six) or overall medals (11) than Capilano.
The Blues achieved success this year as Dailly instilled the meaning of team into his student-athletes, who believe and support each other. The Capilano bench boss understood the team dynamics and built a system in which his players could work together for a common goal.
Dailly is also the Blues Summer Soccer Camps Director as well as the Head Coach and Instructor at the West Vancouver Soccer Academy. In addition, he offers free elementary coaching clinics to local youth community coaches each year.
