Coach Jim Johnson is an authority on the subject of realizing your dreams. His public speaking emphasizes the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship. He’s also the Author of A Coach and a Miracle; Life Lessons from a Man Who Believed in an Autistic Boy.” Coach Johnson spent 30 years developing winning high school basketball teams, including taking over three losing varsity programs and turning them into winners in short periods of time. But he’s most famous for one particular game.

In February 2006, Coach Johnson made the kindhearted gesture of inserting his autistic manager, Jason McElwain, now known to the world as J-Mac into Greece Athena High School’s final home game, which the Trojans won 79-43. J-Mac scored 20 points in just over four minutes, including six three-point baskets, to become an instant national celebrity. The Trojans, under Coach Johnson’s guidance, went on to win the Section V title for 2006, another sectional win in 2007, and their third straight win in 2008.
