22-Year-Old Basketball Coach Accused Of Posing As 13-Year-Old During Game

An assistant basketball coach at a Virginia high school has been fired for posing as a 13-year-old player during a game.

Churchland High School officials fired Arlisha Boykins, 22, after they learned she posed as a vacationing player during a junior varsity game in early January, officials say. Video of the game shows Boykins playing alongside her much-younger teammates, scoring a majority of the team's points. “Coaches always preach to the kids about integrity and those types of things, so I was just shocked,” says the father of the girl Boykins posed as. In addition to canning Boykins, Churchland officials have called off the rest of this season's basketball games, they've announced.

Can you think of a reason the head coach wasn't fired too?
