Kameron helped coach this past weekend AAU game. They won the tournament!
The weekend also included an appearance by Greece Athena graduate Jason “J-Mac” McElwain, who was there for the 3-point shooting contest. J-Mac, who is a high-functioning autistic, made national headlines in 2006 when he drilled six 3-pointers and scored 20 points in the last four minutes of a high school game against Spencerport. He earned the ESPY award that year for Best Moment in Sports.
McElwain, now an assistant coach at his alma mater, has made speaking engagements around the country. He’s even qualified for next year’s Boston Marathon.
“It’s awesome to come out to a small community like Palmyra and give back to the youth,” said McElwain, who has competed in four Macker tournaments. “For all the success I’ve had, giving back has always been important to me. I had fun playing basketball. The reason I coach is to impact youth.
Kelsie played her last softball game tonight for the championship. She just wanted a medal! She got a trophy… they won 19-18.
