"A man among boys"....not just a cliche' anymore
This story just goes to show what some people will do for high-school sports programs....
From FoxNews -- A West Texas student who led his high school basketball team to the state playoffs last season was actually a 22-year-old man, police said Tuesday.
Police say the basketball star was really Guerdwich Montimere, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Haiti who school officials say was recognized last month by Florida coaches as having been a star high school player in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., a few years ago.
22 years old....heh heh, maybe he got left back for like 6 years.
I wouldn't be surprised if this sort of shenanigan took place all over the country. There's almost as much pressure to be successful at the premier high-school level as there is at the collegiate level.
