Let’s face it, young kids playing basketball can be a “not so pretty” thing…  there are awkward shots from tip-off to the final buzzer.

If you have good mechanics, you only need three fingers to shoot a basketball. No support hand. No gripping. Just the right elbow angle, a flick of the wrist and tons of practice.

For one Alpharetta, Ga., high school star, that lesson is more like a way of hoops life — and might even land him a spot at one of college hoops’ modern powers.

Guard Zach Hodskins was born without the lower half of his left arm. This would seem to make a basketball career impossible. But not only has Hodskins worked his way to becoming a basketball player — which would be impressive in and of itself — he is a very good one, with a tight handle and a picture-perfect jump shot that should be required viewing for every 10-year-old summer camp attendee in the country.
