Overcomer

Zach Hodskins

Zach Hodskins

Zach Hodskins, a 6-foot-2, 175 pound shooting guard from Alpharetta Milton High School in Georgia, has been offered a position on the University of Florida basketball team. This is quite remarkable, since Hodskins was born without a left hand. His left arm extends just below his elbow.

This young man has developed into a fine player. He didn’t let his condition keep him from fulfilling his desires. Zach overcame his circumstances and, against all odds, became an outstanding high school basketball player who now is apparently going to have a chance to compete on the college level.

How can you not root for this young man?

Hopefully, Zach’s determination will inspire others to become the best that they can be in their chosen field of sports, academics or career. Maybe he can encourage us to do our best for the Lord. Let’s give God the very best we can give him with the talents and abilities that he has given us.

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”—Colossians 3:17.
