A Dream Come True: Zach Hodskins Story

Posted: Updated:
Milton, GA -

It's a story that's hard to believe ...but a one-handed basketball player in Milton is better than most two-handed players his age.

In fact... Zach Hodskins is so good the University of Florida has offered him a spot on the team as a walk-on next year.

The high school senior was born without his left hand and lower arm...yet he's one of Milton High School's best players.

Zach says the offer from the Gators is a dream come true.

"It means the world for me because, you know, my whole life I worked for this opportunity and for somebody to notice me, finally, it's a great feeling."

Zach's high school coach says he won't be surprised if Zach manages to earn a scholarship at Florida because he's talented and he's driven.
