It's a story that may be hard to believe, but coaches of a one-handed basketball player in Georgia say he's better than most 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.

Zach says, "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.
