J-Mac . . . Hoop Dreams Do Come True!


Jason McElwain

Jason McElwain, a senior at Greece Athena High School in New York, was the student manager for the school’s basketball team when coach Jim Johnson called his name in the final game of the year with 4:19 left to play. It was the first and only game J-Mac would ever play in.

The crowd went wild, holding up photo-signs of Jason’s face. Jason, you see, is autistic. And what happened over the final 4:19 of that game was nothing short of magical. If J-Mac’s story doesn’t inspire you, nothing will.

Here is a look at the aftermath of Jason’s heroics, narrated by Tom Rinaldi, who also narrated the first video.
