We’ve all been to a high school basketball game where one of the athletes is so good it looks like he is simply “a men among boys.”
Thing is, if you ever watched a kid named Rashun Richardson play for Skyline High School in Dallas then you were watching just that.
This after it was revealed yesterday that the not-so-young man who claimed to be a Hurricane Harvey refugee in August when he enrolled as a freshman under that name was in fact twenty-five year-old Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley.
Yup, turns out the kid, I mean dude, lived a double life as a teenager for nine months just so he could play high school basketball again, school officials said.
And if you think that is criminal, it turns out he was even dating a 14-year-classmate.
“It’s unbelievable to me that he could get away with this,” the unidentified woman said. “I don’t know what, how [the school] let this slip through the cracks.”
Thankfully, the woman said her daughter told her she did not have a sexual relationship with Gilstrap-Portley… which is good news.
Because unlike his games on the court, that scoring play would have sent him to jail.
Anyway, he was caught when one of his former coaches recognized him during a tournament in April.
He was arrested Friday on a charge of tampering with government records but has since been released after posting bail, court records show.
