He's been featured on the news, in the newspaper and the YouTube video of him scoring a goal in a recent soccer game. And he did it while playing with just one leg!

He's Nico Calabria, #13, who scores for Concord-Carlisle Regional High School in Concord, MA where he is a senior.  Nico was born with just one leg and reports say his family didn't give him any special treatment. He had to do chores just like everyone else.

 

In addition to playing for CCHS, Nico is currently a member of the US Amputee National Team www.ampsoccer.org
Nico and his amputee teammates are currently working to raise the funds needed to train, to equip themselves and to qualify for the 2014 Amputee Soccer World Cup. If you'd like to help you can donate at www.ampsoccer.org/contribute.htm

Wow! What an inspiration for all.
