2 min read

Recently, on Saturday, January 21 2023, a 22-year-old assistant basketball coach lost her job with a Virginia high school after she reportedly impersonated a 13-year-old girl during an official game.
Yes, that’s true, and this is the story of Arlisha Boykins, an assistant for the Churchland H.S. Truckers in Virginia, who recently made international news headlines after it was reported that she impersonated a 13-year-old player who was out of time for a tournament in a league game.

Instead of playing with one less hooper, she literally took matters into her own hands and suited up as the student-athlete. The footage shows the full-grown adult balling out against the competition, driving the lane for a layup, getting a block and nailing free throws against Nansemond River in a Virginia High School League (VHSL) game.
Both Arlisha and the head coach, who allegedly “encouraged such behavior” have been fired.
Churchland High School officials soon confirmed that the 22-year-old assistant coach had indeed played in that game against girls at least 7 years her juniors, but clarified that no school officials had been present at this particular away game.
The Virginia High School League has confirmed that it is aware of the situation, adding that it letting the school deal with the punitive measures.
According to sources close to the Churchland Truckers girls’ junior varsity basketball team, the 22-year-old assistant coach decided to impersonate one of her players because the alternative was playing with one less player, which would have surely lost them the game.

Coaches always preach to the kids about integrity and those types of things, so I was just shocked,” said the father of a 13-year-old Churchland player.

Either way, following this controversial incident, Churchland High School held a meeting with the parents and students of the junior varsity and varsity teams and decided to drop out of this season of the state basketball league.
