Feel good story of the day
When autistic high school student Jason McElwain failed to make his high school basketball team, he became team manager. In the final game of his senior year, the coach let him dress for the game and put him in with 4 minutes left on the clock. Jason scored 20 points, the majority off of 3-pointers. I recommend that you watch the video, just hit Launch Motion Player and it should pop up. It's a few minutes long, but stick with it to see the footage from the game. It's awesome to see the entire gym go insane when Jason starts scoring. High schoolers can be mean and cruel, but they can also be very kind.
