Man, 25, Posing as Hurricane Victim Enrolls, Plays Basketball at Texas High School

A 25-year-old man is facing charges for posing as a high school student and enrolling in a Dallas ISD school.

A 25-year-old man was arrested after allegedly posing as a high school student in a Dallas Independent School District campus so he could compete in high school basketball, according to Texas officials.

It was revealed that Gilstrap-Portley, who once played basketball at North Mesquite High School and at Dallas Christian College, was an imposter when one of his former basketball coaches spotted him at a basketball tournament on April 30, district officials said.

North Mesquite Head Basketball Coach Phillip Randall told NBC DFW that he was not the one who spotted Gilstrap-Portley, but he did tip off Hillcrest High School after he was informed.

The mother of a Hillcrest High School freshman told The Dallas Morning News her daughter dated Gilstrap-Portley in January.
