    He's taking a preferred walk-on spot, right?

    Yep, and could be great for team morale. Glad he's part of the program.

    For those who missed the story, he's a one-armed shooting guard.

    And no, he had nothing to do with the death of Dr. Richard Kimball's wife.

    Rep to you for the Fugitive reference. I remember that played every afternoon on local TV when I was going to UF...back when we could only get like 3 stations over the air!

    That is damn sweet. What a great thing for Donovan to do. What an inspiration for many!

    This will be a tremendous teaching opportunity for Donovan. You can only imagine how he will use this kid as motivation for the regulars.

    Very true...but I suspect it will be just as much a learning oportunity for BD and others around this kid.

    Since my dad put a ball in my hand as soon as I could hold it, I played football, basketball, baseball. I could not even imagine what Zach has gone through. Truly an inspiration to me and I am sure that I will be emotional when he drains a three from downtown.

    We're 16 posts in and no one has made one lame, obvious joke about this? No giving anyone "a hand" or references to a "hand up" or "hand-out"...??? I'm amazed. Gotta hand it to you guys...okay, I'm sorry.

    Seriously though - this is great. I'm happy for the kid and not surprised Billy would do something like this. Whoever commented on the teaching opportunities made easier by this kids presence made a good point. I hope enough people watch video of him to realize this isn't just some sympathy play. He's legit.

    Little known fact - he's actually the God-son of the co-host of Kentucky Sports Radio (the radio show version of the site).

    Yes, all the good things people said about inspiration, etc. are true. But, he also looked like a good player in the videos. I would love to see him get into the action and contribute if possible.
