Greece, NY -- The former Greece Athena High School basketball team manager known as J-Mac will be honored Friday night, when his jersey is retired in the gym where his one-game heroics became a viral video in 2006.

Jason McElwain is autistic. He hit six 3-pointers and finished with 20 points in his only four minutes on the floor.

The ceremony will take place before the start of a scheduled Greece Athena game.
