Zach Hodskins of Georgia is a regular starter against the best players of his age in the region. He averages 31 points per game, and now plays for Milton, one of the top schools in the area. The star player was born without his left lower arm, but teases enquirers by pretending it was bitten off by a shark. “I like that story; makes me sound tougher,” he jokes.
