Dix Hills Soccer Prodigy Goes Viral

Goal scored by U15 Youth team gets teen wonder noticed on YouTube.

If you only watch one sports replay today, this is it.

Nkosi Burgess, who plays on the Dix Hills Heat U15 Youth soccer travel team, scored an incredible overhead goal that most people wouldn’t believe unless they saw it with their own eyes.

Lucky for readers, the move was captured on film and uploaded to YouTube. The video went viral over the weekend, receiving more than a million views, and will certainly get the teen noticed in the sports arena.

In the game played at Dowling College against Hauppauge Brazil on March 24, Burgess is on the receiving end of a free kick into the box. He then wows the crowd by flicking the ball to himself on his back heel and completes a backward overhead kick into the goal. 

The incredible move prompts a voice to speak up. A spectator is heard saying, “Wow” and then a slight execrate, natural to the sight.

The Dix Hills Heat won the game 2-0.

A Yahoo! Sports blog picked up the video, which was originally posted on YouTube. ESPN also republished the YouTube video which had 1,112,940 hits Monday morning.
