HOOPS HOAX: Man, 25, allegedly posed as teen to play basketball

Meanwhile, the Texas man became somewhat of a high school star, with everyone looking up to him, especially female students.

A 25-year-old man posed as a teenager enrolled in a Dallas ISD high school and played basketball this school year.

He claimed to have been left homeless by Hurricane Harvey after approaching Skyline and then Hilcrest High School.

"I'm upset, frustrated, angry and sad at the same time", she said in an interview with the Dallas Morning News.

Sidney Gilstrap-Portley had claimed he was a refugee from Hurricane Harvey, allowing him to enrol in the school. Unsurprisingly, he tore up the competition en route to being named the district's offensive player of the year.

The individual started to attract unwanted attention after the mother of a 14-year-old student contacted the authorities regarding Richardson's behavior.

As a student, Gilstrap-Portley dated a 14-year old girl. Portley was arrested Friday and is facing a charge of tampering with government records. He was taken into the Dallas County Jail, but has subsequently been released on a bail bond.

During his time at Hillcrest, he also played on the Hillcrest High basketball team. It was revealed that he was an imposter when his former basketball coach recently saw him playing for a high school team, the source said. So much for that.

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

The mother, who didn't want to share her name or show her face on FOX 4, said the man they all thought was a teen made a play for her daughter.

"I don't know what, how the school let this slip through the cracks".

Hillcrest High School basketball's newest guard turned quite a few heads this season in Dallas. However, when they spoke on the phone the unidentified woman said he was always respectful and her daughter assured her there relationship wasn't sexual. "When we had the issue of the Hurricane Harvey in the Houston-area, he took advantage of that and portrayed himself as a victim of that event and enrolled himself in one of our schools". It could have gone differently if he had other intentions to hurt her or to traffic her'.
