Zach Hodskins: One-Armed Basketball Player Offered spot with Florida Gators
Hodskins, a guard who has a preternatural touch from behind 3-point range, has excelled without any part of his left arm below the elbow, a birth defect that he refused to let end his prep basketball career.
Hodskins was offered a preferred walk-on offer by the University of Florida. Such an offer would guarantee Hodskins a spot on the team without a full scholarship, meaning that the Gators would have a one-handed player on their bench beginning with the 2014-15 season.
