One-Handed Basketball Player Makes Florida Debut Last Night

The Florida Gators started their basketball season with a 68-45 win over William & Mary on Friday night, and one of their freshman walk-ons - Zach Hodskins - got some time on the court in the blowout.

What makes this special is that Hodskins was born without the lower part of his left arm, but this is no charity act - Hodskins was a sharpshooter in high school.

He played two minutes for the No. 7 Gators and didn't score a point, but he was happy to fulfill a "lifelong dream".

Florida's next game is Monday against Miami at 7:00 p.m. on ESPNU.
