The One-Legged Soccer Player Who Proves Perseverance Makes Everything Is Possible


19 year-old Nico Calabria was born with one leg. Through a collection of home videos taken by his father we see his struggles and his perseverance to become a fantastic football (or soccer, for you ‘mericans) player. The Massachusetts native began playing for Carlisle-Concord High School in his freshman year.

Nico is yet another example of how through perseverance we can do anything we set out minds to, regardless of our setbacks.
