  • 25-year-old posed as teen to play high school basketball: officials

A 25-year-old man is facing charges after posing as a 17-year-old so he could once again play on the high school's basketball team.

Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley was arrested last Friday after enrolling in two Dallas high schools, and causing a sensation with his basketball skills, with sports coaches handing him an award for offensive player of the year.

Gilstrap-Portley fully immersed himself in the high school scene, going so far as to date a 14-year-old classmate, according to the girl's mother.

Gilstrap-Portley then transferred to Hillcrest High School, where he began playing for the basketball team dominating against opposing players on the court.

Reported STDs Reach Record High in California
According to the CDC, most people with chlamydia don't have symptoms , or those symptoms may not appear for several weeks. CDPH Director and State Public Health Officer Karen Smith said that STDs can be prevented by consistent use of condoms.

After Gilstrap-Portley was exposed, a school board spokesperson said it will be reviewing its homeless student policies.

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

School officials believe the alleged con-artists main motivation was to play basketball, with Dallas ISD Superintendent Dr Michael Hinojosa forced to apologize for the blunder. DISD told WFAA that when a student enrolls and claims they are homeless or an evacuee due to a natural disaster, federal law exempts them from requiring documents they might not have.

Harris said district officials believe Gilstrap-Portley went back to high school for the primary goal of reviving his basketball career.

His bogus persona was finally revealed after Phillip Randal, one of his former coaches from North Mesquite High School, had recognized him during a tournament he was involved in. "Rashun Richardson" scored 17 points for the team.

Gilstrap-Portley graduated from North Mesquite High School in 2011, a source told WFAA.

"He was fairly savvy to be able to utilise that type of position, knowing that we were accepting Harvey students".

Hillcrest principal Chris Bayer sent a letter to students and parents on Tuesday that said the school immediately notified the district and local authorities once it "became aware of a student enrolled at our school under false pretenses claiming to be a displaced Hurricane Harvey victim".
