Autistic Child 20 Points (1).JPG

Jason McElwain a 17-year-old senior, who is autistic had always sat on the sidelines at Greece Athena High School basketball games - he would keep the stats, run the clock and hand out water bottles. That all changed last week for McElwain in the final home game of the season. The 17-year-old senior, who usually sits on the bench in a white shirt and black tie, put on a uniform and entered the game with his team way ahead. McElwain proceeded to hit six 3-point shots, finished with 20 points and was carried off the court on his teammates' shoulders.
