One-Legged Soccer Player Scores Epic Goal: One-legged student soccer player Nico Calabria, who uses crutches to compete for Concord-Carlisle Regional High School in Massachusetts, scored recently off a corner kick. "I played four years of Division 1 college soccer -- two of which actually on the field -- and never saw a single person hit a ball so clean off the volley from a corner," writes Mike Foss of USA Today.

Good for him. It is always as inspiration to see someone overcoming personal limitations.

Two thumbs up!

That was pretty sweet! I wish there was more to that video. I would love to see how is also able to do some of the more mundane aspects of soccer such as dribbling, passing, and defense.
