VIDEO: C-C's One-Legged Soccer Player Scores on Corner Kick
Senior forward Nico Calabria scores on a corner during Concord-Carlisle's 9-0 route of Newton South on Wednesday, Sept. 19.
For a high school senior, Nico Calabria's resume is awfully impressive.
Summit Mt. Kilimanjaro at age 13? Check.
Raise $100,000 to send wheelchairs to Tanzania? Check.
Appear as a guest on "The Ellen Degeneres Show?" Check.
Spend a summer as a festival darling when the documentary about his summit, "Nico's Challenge," was winning praise on the film festival circuit? Check.
Take first in the 106-pound division in the DCL's wrestling championships? Check.
Now you can add going viral to that list.
Earlier this week, CCHS head boys soccer coach Ray Pavlik posted a video to YouTube of Calabria scoring on a corner kick in the Patriots' 9-0 win Wednesday over Newton South.
The pass was nice, for sure. But more eye-catching was the kick.
As the ball arcs past the defenders, Nico, who was born with one leg, planted his sticks in the ground and swung his leg up to meet the ball and redirect it past the diving keeper and into the net.
If you're impressed by the goal, then you really should see Nico's parkour stunts.
