A 25-year-old man from Dallas, Texas led a double life as a teenager enrolled in high school in order to play on the basketball team.
Gilstrap-Portley, it appears, took advantage of loopholes meant as (federally mandated) acts of compassion for the rootless and the homeless and enrolled at Skyline, then Hillcrest, and pretended to be a teenager again.
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. The Dallas Hillcrest guard emerged as the team's best player as a 17-year old freshman, earning the district's offensive player of the year award. This year, he used Hurricane Harvey as cover to attempt to relaunch his basketball career.
Gilstrap-Portley even played for the Hillcrest basketball team, the school confirmed.

In reality, Gilstrap-Portley graduated from suburban North Mesquite High School in 2011, an unidentified source told WFAA.
The safety of our students at Hillcrest High School is our top priority. And the mother of a 14-year-old classmate of Gilstrap-Portley says the 25-year-old also dated her daughter while pretending to be a Hillcrest student. "It's unbelievable to me that he could get away with this", the woman said. The source said Gilstrap-Portley was discovered as an imposter when his former coach saw him playing for Hillcrest. "That's why I was shocked when I heard that all this came out because that's not the kid that I knew".
"He was a good kid", North Mesquite's coach, Phillip Randall, told the newspaper. He is now out on bond.
