This story about Jason McElwain is five years old but I remember it like it was yesterday. Every time I watch the video I get choked up. It is truly a made for Disney script. An autistic boy who didn’t see himself as different from anyone else, he was as excited to be team manager as he would have been to be a player. Finally as a senior and on senior night J. Mac was put into the game and the rest only the video can do justice.
In an article Jason’s father said that Jason was not afraid of failure like other kids, a result of his autism. Just think what heights we could all reach if we were just a little less afraid of failure.
God Bless and Lead On.
