Hansel Emmanuel Donato Dominguez, who lost his left arm when he was six years old, received a scholarship offer Friday from Tennessee State, his first offer from a Division I program.

Donato Dominguez made the announcement in an Instagram post.

Donato Dominguez, 17, is 6-foot-5 and plays at Life Christian Academy in Kissimmee, Fla. He moved to Florida last year from the Dominican Republic.

When he was 6, a wall fell on top of him. He was stuck underneath for two hours before his father rescued him. He took his son to the hospital, where his arm was amputated.
