Hansel Emmanuel, the one-armed basketball star, has announced through his Instagram he has a new NIL deal with Gatorade. He also said the deal was powered by Z-Axis Sports, a sports agency representing a limited number of clients.

“Want doesn’t come from anywhere but within. I’ve got a drive to be great. So can you! @gatorade #gatoradepartner,” Emmanuel posted to Instagram.

Emmanuel lost his left arm when he was 6-years-old. A wall collapsed and trapped the arm for 2 hours. This led to it being amputated. Now, 17 years old, he hasn’t let that slow him down, becoming a dominant high school basketball player.

For his part, Emmanuel doesn’t want to be seen as the player who is missing his left arm. He wants to simply be seen as a basketball player and has said as much.

“[I wish] that they only see me as a great player who will go as far as many. That I am a good player,” he told the Orlando Sentinel.

While no details are currently available about Hansel Emmanuel’s new NIL deal with Gatorade, the move looks like it will be a part of Gatorade’s attempts to be more diverse in its sponsorship.
