22 Yr Old Assistant Coach Suits Up For 13 Yr Old Basketball Team
The 22-year-old former assistant coach on the Churchland JV girls basketball team apparently impersonated a 13-year-old player and suited up for her team's game.
The student athlete on the roster was out of town at a club basketball tournament, the girl's parents told WAVY10.
(Now former) Assistant Coach Arlisha Boykins is no longer an employee of Portsmouth Public Schools after her performance as the 13-year-old player. As far as the rest of the team, coaches and parents have opted to not play any more games for the rest of the season.
“Coaches always preach to the kids about integrity and those types of things, so I was just shocked,” the father of the 13-year-old said.
The school division said they're also launching an investigation into the matter. The family told WAVY their daughter who was impersonated no longer wants to attend Churchland High School and will be looking into other options for her education.
