Jason’s Basketball Dream Comes True

As the manager for his high school basketball team, Jason McElwain, a 17-year-old autistic teen from upstate New York, usually showed his enthusiasm for the sport from the sidelines. But all of that changed after one groundbreaking game.

With 4:19 left on the clock, Jason took to the court and scored 20 points, making him the highest scoring player in the game — the first and only varsity game he ever played. But even more exciting than his stats is the hope Jason inspired in a young couple learning to cope with their son’s autism.

Watch footage from his jaw-dropping game in this video, and learn more about the legacy this inspiring teen is leaving.
