Zach Hodskins Gets His Shot at Greatness

Sometimes lost in the business that is college sports are the stories that really matter. The stories of triumph over what to others looks like insurmountable odds. Zach Hodskins embodies all of that and more. Hodskins has pinpoint passing potential as well as the vision to find the open man.  Hodskins is a six foot four 200 guard has the quickness to beat defenders off of the dribble as well as a shooting stroke that is money from behind the arch.  Hodskins had been entertaining offers from the University of Kentucky but has decided to commit with the Florida Gators. Hodskins does all of this without the aide of the bottom portion of his left arm. Despite what some people would call a handicap Hodskins has used his disability and managed to become a player on a division one roster.

The Gators advanced to the Elite Eight last year before being defeated by the Trey Burke lead Michigan Wolverines.  With potential starters Scottie Wilbekin, Dorian Finney-Smith and Damontre Harris suspended indefinitely the Gators could use some inspiration to get them back in the national championship title hunt. SEC basketball as a whole has not been the same way as it use to be. Players like Al Horford and Joakim Noah are just some examples of where the Florida Gators  are striving to get back to. Hodskins may not play much at all during his time as a Florida Gator but what Hodskins does bring to the table is the undeniable heart of a champion. Hodskins has overcome manager obstacles on his rise to a both YouTube star  and a real on the court star as well.
