A Memphis, Tennessee high school has been disqualifiedfrom the state tournament because a 22-year-old, married man faked his transcript so he could play high school basket ball.
McKenzie Sewell faked his transcript so he could play basketball for Ridgeway High School. His 35-year-old wife posed as his “mother” guardian in order for him to enroll at Ridgeway. After some investigation, the school discovered that Sewell had already received his GED and he was a former gang member.
The team had ranked 3rd in the state before being disqualified and many of its players were expecting to be scouted during the state tournament and now they won’t get that chance.
