Rare Player Gets a Shot

by Robb Reel

I usually write a clever headline, but there just isn't one for this story.

Any turn of phrase based on the unique situation of Zach Hodskins would be inappropriate.  Zach happens to have only one full arm.  Zach also now has a spot on the University of Florida basketball team.


This is another one of those moments when I am reminded that I shouldn't complain about any inconvenience or lament those who have it better than I do.  I am reminded of Pete Gray and Jim Abbott, who each chased the Field of Dreams and made it to the majors in baseball.  Maybe one day we'll see Zach Hodskins in the Final Four and perhaps the NBA.
