Gilstrap-Portley graduated from North Mesquite High School in 2011, a source told WFAA. But one Dallas man took nostalgia to the extreme and passed himself off as a student at several Dallas high schools.

Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley allegedly posed as a 17-year-old Hurricane Harvey refugee so he could play boys' basketball at Hillcrest High School in Dallas, Texas.

Because of the damage to public records by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, some schools still do not have access to student and vital statistics information.

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

Sidney Gilstrap Portley was enrolled in two Dallas high schools for nearly nine months, claiming to be a Hurricane Harvey refugee.

As a student, Gilstrap-Portley dated a 14-year old girl.

Gilstrap-Portley, who officials say was operating under the alias Rashun Richardson, was named the District 11-5A Offensive Player of the Year during the 2017-18 season. "It's unbelievable to me that he could get away with this", the woman said.

A former coach from North Mesquite High School who recently recognized hime notified the district. "I don't know what, how [the school] let this slip through the cracks". Except, no. He was, in the words of the Dallas ISD superintendent, "a con man" who was arrested Friday and faces charges of tampering with government documents. He is now out on bond.
