Basketball Star with a Physical Challenge Signs with Florida

Disabilty? What Disabilty…

Zach Hodskins is a force to be reckoned with. You see, Zach hasn’t let a physical challenge get in the way of his dreams. At 6’4”, 200 pounds, Zach has not only overcome life’s challenges, but he has become a skilled 3 point shooter despite not having a left forearm.

But it wasn’t always that way for Hodskins. In fact, he says growing up was a little tough, and he remembers regularly thanking God for giving him the will and motivation to overcome the obstacles, and crushing the doubters.

Well, it appears his hard work is about to pay off. Recently after drawing the attention of numerous Division 1 teams, Zach received the news of a lifetime, and Zach signed with Florida as a preferred walk-on! That’s right, Billy Donovan Florida!

Truly inspiring, Zach has once again crushed the doubters, and has simultaneously knocked down additional barriers that many with a physical challenge face daily. In fact, Zach’s skills and talents have even gone on to amaze the liking of a special celebrity, Beyonce. She recently tweeted on Zach’s success and talents, and hailed Zach as a, “True inspiration”.

We will keep an eye on Zach and his adventure, and we wish him the best of luck. Who knows, maybe with a celebrity like Beyonce watching, Zach can keep his dreams alive, and look to play professionally. Her hubby is sure to know a few owners here and there, and could always put in a good word.

Congratulations Zach!
