Verbal Shenanigans Episode 136-Coach Jim Johnson
Feb 9th,2017

Some episodes help inspire through conversation with passionate people.  This is one of those episodes.  In February of 2006, Coach Jim Johnson put Jason McElwain, an autistic senior who had yet to play a high school basketball game, into the last game of the season.  The rest was history.  After shooting the lights out, J-Mac and Coach Jim's story went viral and reached outlets like ESPN, CBS, and CNN.  Jim's story is inspiring, thought provoking, and unique and he continues to share it all over the country.
