Soccer Player Emily Dayton Honored for Non-Profit Work

Soccer Player Emily Dayton Honored for Community Service, Teamwork

Emily Dayton, a sophomore defender on UD's women's soccer team, has been named a 2013 Coach Wooden Collegiate Citizenship Cup semi-finalist for her efforts as a student-athlete and work with non-profit organization You Can NOT Be Replaced. Dayton joins 19 other semi-finalists and five finalists from universities representing every National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) division.

Dayton and her family founded You Can NOT Be Replaced to remind teens how special they are and to prevent teen suicide. The organization distributes rubber wrist bracelets stamped with the motto "I can NOT be replaced." Recipients of the bands are asked to wear them until they "see someone that you feel the band is supposed to be passed to: whether you know them or not," according to

"When you give the band away, tell the person something positive about themselves or life. That one small act of kindness will not ever be wasted. The band is replaceable, but the person is not," said Dayton.

On the field, Dayton helped UD to seven shutouts and a 12-8-1 record in 2012, a season in which Crusader Women's Soccer finished runner-up in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.

The Coach Wooden Citizenship Cup is awarded by Athletes for a Better World (ABW), an organization that seeks to develop the character, teamwork and civic responsibility of athletes throughout the world. The 2013 Collegiate Wooden Cup recipient will be announced in April.
