Caio Correa To Brazil

Performing in front of thousands of adoring fans and earning a living playing "the beautiful game" is a dream pursued by many, but realized by few. Caio Correa knows the odds may be against him becoming a professional soccer player in his native Brazil, but that isn’t stopping the Nantucket High striker from returning to his homeland to pursue a dream he has had as long as he can remember.

"Since I was little, I used to go to the games and I remember the fans, 95,000 people, screaming the best players’ names," said Correa. "I always knew I wanted to be one of those players."

This is not a pipedream for Correa; you see, professional soccer is in his blood. Just look at his birth certificate, which lists his father’s occupation as "professional soccer player."

"My father was a professional player for 12 years," Correa said. "He played in the top Brazilian leagues and he used to tell me stories about scoring in championship games."

Correa’s father, Luiz, owns a painting business in Nantucket, but in his younger days played on several Brazilian clubs, including Bahia. He played against Flamengo, one of Brazil’s most storied clubs, and squared off on the same field as Zico, one of Brazil’s all-time greats. Correa fashions his dreams after such stories, and hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps.
