25-year-old Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley decided one day that he wanted to go back to high school and relive his glory days as a basketball player.

So he enrolled at Hillcrest High School in Dallas, Texas as Rashun Richardson after learning the school was accepting Hurricane Harvey victims.

Gilstrap-Portley saw this as an opportunity to dust off his sneakers and hit the hardwood like it was 2011. As a star player on the school’s basketball team, he dominated younger athletes and was named the district’s offensive player of the year, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Gilstrap-Portley lived a double life as a teenager for nine months — even dating a 14-year-old — just so he could play high school basketball again, school officials said.

“It’s unbelievable to me that he could get away with this,” the girl’s mother said. “I don’t know what, how [the school] let this slip through the cracks.”
