CBS News correspondent Steve Hartman, right, talks with Jason "J-Mac" McElwain. Four years ago, McElwain, who is autistic, scored 20 points during his high school basketball game in Rochester, N.Y. His story became the subject of a "CBS Evening News" piece that led to McElwain getting a book deal, a movie deal and appearing on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."
The original interview with McElwain was for Hartman's "Assignment America" series. The segment was so popular it became the first piece to re-run on the "CBS Evening News."
Here, Hartman, second left, revisits McElwain, four years after that first interview.
After McElwain's story aired on "Evening News," Oprah came calling. He also won an ESPY award, has a book and a movie deal, and met former President George W. Bush.
McElwain, who is autistic, captured the nation's attention when he scored 20 points in the closing minutes of his high school's basketball game in Rochester, N.Y.
Steve Hartman and the "CBS Evening News" caught up again recently with McElwain, four years and two subsequent interviews after they first met.
