Texas man, 25, poses as Harvey evacuee, stars for HS hoops team

According to the district, 17-year-old Rashaun Robinson is really 25-year-old Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley, who graduated from North Mesquite in 2011 - "when I was 7", my son said Tuesday night over dinner, when he was still insisting it wasn't that weird. Dallas school district officials say Gilstrap-Portley first enrolled at Skyline High School and later moved to Hillcrest High School, where he joined the basketball team.

Dallas Independent School District spokeswoman Robyn Harris spoke with the Dallas Morning News and said Gilstrap-Portley was shrewd in his ability to outsmart school officials. By the end of his first season, he was on scouting websites' radars as a freshman prospect and had been named District 11-5A offensive player of the year. This year, he used Hurricane Harvey as cover to attempt to relaunch his basketball career.

An attorney wasn't listed for Gilstrap-Portley in online records as of Wednesday.

The safety of our students at Hillcrest High School is our top priority.

The woman also said that while she did not approve of her 14-year-old daughter dating Gilstrap-Portley who pretended to be 17 years old.

Gilstrap-Portley was discovered when a former coach identified him as a player at North Mesquite High School earlier this decade. "That's why I was shocked when I heard that all this came out because that's not the kid that I knew". Randal admits that "he was a good kid".

The faux high school star faces a charge of tampering with government records, per the News.
