Jason McElwain speaks at Niagara Falls H.S.

Everyone knows the story of Jason McElwain. Diagnosed with Autism at 2 years old, he's the one that drilled six three-pointers in just four minutes of Greece Athena's Senior Day game in 2006. It was one of the most uplifting moments in the history of sports, one that won J-Mac an ESPY. Serving as the team's manager, he was given a chance to play and didn't disappoint.

On Monday and Tuesday, he spoke to kids in Niagara Falls. Through the "Men of Excellence" program, girls basketball coach Mike Esposito and vice principal Eddie Scott brought J-Mac to NFHS.

Check out Wednesday's paper for the story but here's a clip from J-Mac's Q & A segment:
