Nico Calabria has made the jump from Internet viral sensation to commercial star thanks to his amazing story.

Back in 2012, a video of Calabria, who was born with one leg, scoring an amazing goal in a high school soccer game went viral. The YouTube clip now has over 1.75 million views.

Calabria has now graduated from Concord-Carlisle High in Massachusetts and will represent the United States at the Amputee Football World Cup in Mexico in November, according to Men's Fitness.

Now Powerade has turned his life story into a powerful and inspiring commercial that will air during the World Cup this summer.
