He later transferred to Hillcrest High School, where he joined the basketball team and was named the district's offensive player of the year. In those situations, Dallas school superintendent Michael Hinojosa says the district may wave ID requirements.

Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley apparently enrolled at Hillcrest High School under the name Rashun Richardson after claiming to be a victim displaced by Harvey, which made landfall in the Houston area in mid-August.

"He took that as an opportunity to gain access to our schools", Dallas Independent School District spokeswoman Robyn Harris told the Dallas Morning News.

"You couldn't actually script that, somehow it fell into his lap that he was able to pull that off", Hinojosa says.

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

Hinojosa addressed a narrative that emerged in the wake of Gilstrap-Portley's arrest, in which he has been portrayed as an opportunist looking for one more shot at basketball glory.

"I'm upset, frustrated, angry and sad at the same time", the mother said. "It's unbelievable to me that he could get away with this", said the girl's mother, who spoke anonymously to the Dallas Morning News.

"I knew the young man".

"Unfortunately this was a flawless storm", Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Michael Hinojosa said.

"As a parent, I try to talk to her right now being more concerned and aware of the situation because he's not just a kid her age".

Gilstrap-Portley appears to have played basketball for the Dallas Christian Crusaders of the National Christian College Athletic Association during the 2013-14 season after graduating from North Mesquite High School in 2011.

"Because I was the one that helped him look around during his first day", Dosso recalled.

Gilstrap-Portley was discovered when a former coach identified him as a player at North Mesquite High School earlier this decade.
