25-year-old Passes as High Schooler to Relive Basketball Glory Days

25-year-old Passes as High Schooler to Relive Basketball Glory Days

He was found out as an imposter when a former basketball coach spotted him at a tournament last month.

When Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley chose to have his own fast times at Hillcrest High School in Dallas, he got no such permission from the administration, and simply claimed to be a 17-year-old Hurricane Harvey refugee in order to join the basketball team. Hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area in mid-August.

"It's unbelievable to me that he could get away with this", the unidentified woman said.

"We have some liberal policies for homeless students, but he knew that", Hinojosa said.

Power outages remained in many areas into Wednesday afternoon, with the lion's share of outages in NY state, CT and Pennsylvania. The National Weather Service on Wednesday said two tornadoes hit Putnam County, New York amid storms across the Northeast.

Gilstrap-Portley took advantage of Hurricane Harvey to enroll at the Skyline High School in Dallas. No, really, a grown-ass adult has been accused of posing as a 17-year-old to play basketball.

Making matters even more unsettling for Gilstrap-Portley's fellow students and their parents, he is alleged to have dated a 14-year-old girl who also went to Hillcrest.

The mother of a Hillcrest High freshman said that her daughter started dating Portley in January.

Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley was arrested Friday night on charges of tampering with government records. He was taken into custody at the Dallas County Jail but has since been released after posting bail.

He wrote: "I'm thrilled that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked Bishop Michael Curry to preach at their wedding". Curry became popular in 2012 after he preached the sermon that came to be known as "We need some insane Christians".

To fans of Hillcrest High's varsity basketball team, its new star player must have seemed like a gift from above. However, this isn't the first time we've seen people in their 20s successfully pose as high schoolers to play sports.

According to Dallas ISD spokeswoman Robyn Harris, this coach told the Hillcrest coach "one of my former players who graduated a long time ago is playing for you". So much for that.

The woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said she didn't approve of her daughter's relationship with the man they both knew as the 17-year-old Rashun.

Gilstrap-Portley, who officials say was operating under the alias Rashun Richardson, was named the District 11-5A Offensive Player of the Year during the 2017-18 season.

"I don't know what, how the school let this slip through the cracks". It could have gone differently if he had other intentions to hurt her or to traffic her'.
