22-Year-Old Memphis Man Poses As High School Kid To Play Basketball
Ever consider how great it would be if you could take the knowledge and skills that you have now and use them when you were back in high school? If you played sports, imagine the kind of advantage you would have over everyone else.
But why bother when you won’t be able to turn back time, right? Well, 22-year-old McKinzie Sewell may not have been able to turn back the clock, but he was able to convince just about everyone that he was a high school basketball player.
According to a report from Dime Magazine, 6 foot 6 Sewell, from Memphis Tenessee, had his wife sign papers stating that she was his guardian and helped him forge high school transcripts.
Sewell, an alleged former gang member, has a GED from the state of Louisiana—his only reason for sneaking back into high school was in order to play basketball.
Now the Ridgeway high school men’s basketball team has been ruled ineligible for the state playoffs, even though they were only one game away. The funny thing is that Sewell wasn’t much of a player and spent most of his time on the bench.
