Jason McElwain is a former amateur athlete in both basketball and marathon, as well as a public speaker with High-functioning autism. McElwain came to fame on national news in 2006, when he shocked the world playing in a high school basketball game and scored twenty points.

On February 15, 2006, he played in a senior night basketball game against Spencerport High School, for a division title. Greece Athena got a large lead, so Coach Johnson decided to let McElwain play in the last four minutes and nineteen seconds of the game. After initially missing two shots, J-Mac became "hot as a pistol". McElwain made six three-point shots and one two-pointer, finishing with twenty points. After the final buzzer rang, the crowd dashed onto the court in celebration. Footage of the event was featured on ESPN days after the game, and a movie about McElwain’s life was in production. The movie, The Magic Of J-Mac released in 2009. Eventually, McElwain would make it onto a minor league basketball team in Rochester.

Since 2006, many high schools have adapted the same idea, inserting students with disabilities into games, especially on senior night. Some of which also produced spectacular results. Following his rise to fame, Jason McElwain wrote a book titled The Game of My Life. The book is written mainly by Jason, but includes sections written by his family, coach, and teammates.
