One-Armed Internet Sensation Hansel Emmanuel Donato Domínguez Receives D1 Basketball Offer From HBCU

Sometimes there are stories that show you how resilient we can be as human beings and this story is one of those inspirational stories.

Hansel Emmanuel Donato Domínguez now seventeen years old lost his arm when he was 6 when a wall crumbled and fell on his arm which had to be amputated. But he did not let the loss of his arm stop his drive and passion for basketball and life.  So forward to 2021 Hansel has made a name for himself in the basketball world and across the globe becoming an internet sensation as more videos circulate showing off his amazing basketball skills. Skills that make him one of the best young basketball players in the country, despite having only one arm. Dunking, dribbling, step back jump shots this kid does it all and at a high level and I’m happy to announce that he just received a division 1 scholarship from HBCU Tennessee State University to play basketball.

Congratulations to that young man.

Speaking of HBCU’s… 

Morgan State University is making some big changes that affect employees and faculty. First they are implementing a new $15 hour minimum wage for its hourly employees. The effects have already taken place beginning earlier this month. will also convert contract employees to full-time wages with benefits. The university will also increase the adjunct faculty pay to attract and retain high-quality instructors for courses at all levels.

Morgan State University President David K. Wilson said in a release“Coming from the apex of the pandemic, when many of our contractual employees were still showing up to work and serving on the front line to keep things going despite COVID’s impact on their own families, the workforce inequities were made clear, including those on our own campus. For Morgan to ascend to the next level of national prominence, our first order of business must be to make our Morgan family whole.”
