Soccer kick crutches HS player-teamvidThird-year high school student Nico Calabria scored an amazing goal Wednesday for his varsity soccer team — the scissor kick was especially impressive because Nico was born with only one leg.

The Massachusetts athlete has been playing soccer all his life and he chooses to use crutches on the field because he says prosthetics weigh him down.

The goal wasn’t even the most admirable feat in Nico’s young life.

He says he wants to be a role model for people who are down with their disabilities, and he demonstrates that.

When he was only 13, he became the first person with one leg ever to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro raising more than $100,000 for a charity providing wheelchairs in Africa.
