You may know the public story of Jason McElwain, J-Mac, and his impact on high school basketball. Now, hear the behind-the-scenes story from J-Mac's varsity coach, Jim Johnson.

Without a doubt J-Mac helped the team on, and off, the the court. It was his amazing attitude over three years a the team's manager, helping the team become cohesive and go on to win the first Section V title of Coach Johnson’s career.

Just a few short months after that landmark season, NBA Legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson paid a visit to the school. He met with the team for over an hour and then conducted an assembly for the entire student body. When his assistants motioned to him that it was time to leave, he waved them off, saying he wanted to spend more time.

J-Mac’s magical moment won the ESPY for “Best Sports Moment” at the ESPN awards show later that year.

In this episode, Coach Jim Johnson tells the story of J-Mac and how he affected the success of the team.
