ESPN - the story of Jason McElwain

ESPN tells the inspiring story of Jason McElwain, an autistic teen who worked as manager of his school's varsity basketball team. In the final home game of the 2005-2006 season, coach Jim Johnson had McElwain suit up, and with 4 minutes to play and a comfortable lead, let him play.

McElwain went on to score 20 points in the final 3 minutes, 12 seconds of the game, going 7-for-13 and 6-for-10 from three-point range, and was the game's high scorer. Very cool story.
