Florida guard Zach Hodskins may be becoming the most popular walk-on in the country. The 6-foot-4 guard, who was born without a portion of his left arm, went viral on YouTube a few years ago for his awesome skills on the court. He walked on to the Gators ahead of last season, and had appeared nine games across the two seasons before tonight, when he scored his first collegiate points. They didn't come on an open bunny or at the free throw line. Against Jacksonville State, he hits a defender with a nasty spin move and scores at the hoop.
