Coach Jim Johnson and the story of his autistic high school student Jason McElwain (J-Mac). Stunned the world when he entered a basketball game in the dying minutes and proceeded to shoot light.  This true story has captivated audiences on: Oprah Winfrey, CBS, ESPN, CNN, and got millions of hits on YouTube.  J-Mac’s magic moment won the ESPY for “Best Sports Moment” at the ESPN awards show of that same year. 

“I think it’s a great story — to follow your dream, follow your goals and never ever quit. It’s a great story for people of my age, people of any age.” Dick Vitale, ESPN Basketball Commentator and Basketball Hall of Famer
