Touching Hearts by Making a Dream Come True

In February 2006, in a high school basketball game in New York, a coach and his protégé, a young man with autism, made history.

Not only did young Jason McElwain have autism, he was only 173cms tall, not really the height for a basketballer, so instead of playing for the team, he had become the Team Manager.

Basketball Coach, Jim Johnson, at the Greece Athena High School, decided to give young Jason a ‘fair go’ in the remaining few minutes of the last game of the season. He didn’t promise anything, but said he would try to at least let Jason on the court, just to experience the atmosphere of wearing the team jersey on court.

The Coach, all of the players and the other students in the audience, knew just how much this meant to Jason.

Did he seize his opportunity to live his dream?

What more can I say… just watch the video – you’ll be glad you did!

Then ask yourself, ‘Am I living the dream?’
