  • Jason McElwain, is a high-functioning autistic American; he came to fame on national news in 2006 when he played for four minutes and nineteen seconds during a high school basketball game and scored twenty points. McElwain had a passion for basketball, so Greece Athena High School basketball coach Jim Johnson appointed him manager of the team. On February 15, 2006, Greece Athena was playing Spencerport High School for a division title. Greece Athena got a large lead, so Coach Jim Johnson decided to let McElwain play in the last four minutes. After initially missing two shots, McElwain made six three-point shots and one two-pointer. After the final buzzer rang, the crowd dashed onto the court in celebration.
