Take a bow Nico Calabria!

One-legged Nico Calabria scored a brilliant volley for Concord-Carlisle boys in their 9-0 victory over Newton South this week.

Calabria, who is also a high-level wrestler, was born with just a left leg but this doesn’t stop him scoring a terrific volley from a corner.

At age 13, Calabria  became the first person to ever summit 19,341 ft. Mount Kilimanjaro on crutches and has also been the subject of a documentary titled “Nico’s Challenge.”

The video was posted by Concord-Carlisle coach Ray Pavlik and we may well see Calabria score more wonder goals as he represents the US Amputee National Team.
