Modal Trigger Sidney Gilstrap Portley Dallas County Jail

25-year-old posed as teen to play high school basketball officials

Dallas County records show that Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley was arrested Friday for tampering with government records, according to The Dallas Morning News. An investigation into his alleged relationship with the teenaged girl is ongoing.

Gilstrap-Portley, who first enrolled at Dallas' Skyline High School in August, moved to Hillcrest two months later, WFAA confirmed.

No. 14 for Hillcrest was a man among boys - literally.

For nine months a 25-year-old man pretended to be a teenager just to be able to play high school football.

School officials, meanwhile, notified parents of the freaky incident in a letter Monday and vowed to review the district's policies, KXAS reports.

'If it's happening at Hillcrest, then it could be happening somewhere else.

"We have some liberal policies for homeless students, but he knew that".

However, Gilstrap-Portley was caught when one of his former coaches from North Mesquite High School saw him playing at a tournament in April and recognized him as one of his players who graduated from high school seven years ago.

The 25-year-old was arrested last week and charged of tampering with government records and is now out on bond.

Gilstrap-Portley later transferred to Hillcrest High School, attended classes and played for its basketball team.

"So it's in their hands right now", Hinojosa said of the UIL. When issues of concern occur we feel it is important to share them with you, so you are aware of the facts.

"It's unbelievable to me that he could get away with this", the unidentified woman said. Her mother told the Dallas Morning News that she is "upset, frustrated and angry at the same time". "That's why I was shocked when I heard that all this came out because that's not the kid that I knew". "And I'd obviously be concerned for my daughter's safety knowing that".

"He was always respectful to me", she told the newspaper. "She's not going to be safe at all", he said.

Gilstrap-Portley's father said his son has a child and live-in fiance.

Gilstrap-Portley allegedly told officials he was a refugee of Hurricane Harvey and homeless. "I never had any problem out of him". "He told me that he went from Skyline".

"We feel the protections in place for kids who need those protections were used against us and used against the district", said Bayer.

"Student safety is the most important thing and when you have an adult in with students like this, it's inappropriate and unacceptable", Hinojosa said. He remembers making the announcement on the television news shortly after Hurricane Harvey, but says the school district is now looking into how it can make sure people don't take advantage of the system.
