It’s hard not to love the story of Jason McElwain. Straight out of Greece Athena high school in Rochester, New York, is the story of a young man who came to embody exactly the sort of tenacity and fighting spirit every single person cannot help but fall in love with. While diagnosed at a young age with Autism, Jason has never had a problem expressing himself when it comes to basketball. He is so involved with the team, that he’s their assistant manager.
One fateful day however, Jason got a chance from his coach to go from a non-player manager in the team, to being out on the court and in the game. This is already a sweet and tremendous story from the start, but when it’s shown just how well Jason shines on the court it makes it something special. It’s probably one of the few times it’s acceptable to say the phrase ‘what a baller’.
