Remember The Inspiring J-Mac Basketball Story?
On Sportswatch this week we were in the midst of a discussion and I made a reference to the story of Jason McElwain – a young man from the Roches with high functioning autism who got an opportunity to play at his local high school basketball game and WENT OFF!!!
scored 20 points on 7-13 shooting, including 6-10 from 3-point range.
I wanted to re-post and share this touching story from ESPN for those who haven’t experienced it. And, if you have, it’s worth watching again (I’ve watched this numerous times, but still instantly get chills everytime I watch him make that first shot….and then the next one, and the next one, and the next one).
